I was able to balance my interests in research and entrepreneurship while at CAM. I created my first iPhone app in my spare time. The design and analysis of the algorithms for that app became the basis for my doctoral research, with my advisor's encouragement. After grad school I founded a startup, which creates iPhone apps, and I began teaching iOS development in the Cornell CS department on the side. I also continue to collaborate on research with friends I made in CAM that, unlike me, continued full-time in academia. As a CAM student you really can choose your own direction, both during and after grad school. Anything is possible.
