Platforms, Place and Your Profession

In research, we often think of our career along given trajectories – tenure track professor, researcher in an industrial lab. In this talk, I reflect on the often times varied range of careers using myself and others as examples. I hope to provide a new frame, in which you can think of jobs as being a platform for building the profession that is yours.
