Utah’s newest grad student is planning to give it up after four years of working in a high-tech manufacturing factory and a research lab.
Alex J. Barger is a Ph.
D. student in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Utah State University, where she has been working with students on robotics, computer vision and data analysis.
The graduate student, who is also a professor of biomedical engineering, said she wanted to move on from working in the manufacturing industry.
She is one of a handful of women in the U.S. who have earned Ph.
Ds in STEM fields, including biomedical engineering and computer science.
Bager is the first to earn her doctorate at Utah, which has been a hotbed of interest in the field of science and technology for years.
Barger is pursuing a master’s degree in computer science, which is also the first degree in science and engineering at a public university.
She hopes to work in the private sector or the government.
In her first year at Utah Tech, Barger earned her doctorates in computer vision, artificial intelligence and information retrieval.
She said she is studying how humans perceive data and how they communicate with each other.
She said she also is studying human-computer interaction and how it affects our society.
She has been studying robots for about three years, but said she has not been able to get a full understanding of how they operate, and how robots could interact with humans.
In addition to working at a robotics factory, Bager said she will continue to study computer vision algorithms and how humans can improve on them.
She also plans to work with students in robotics, robotics engineering and data analytics.
Bager said her plan to pursue a career in computer programming is one that will allow her to spend more time with her husband and family.
She and her husband have been married since 2014 and have two children.
She hopes to pursue her bachelor’s degree at Utah in the fall and her master’s in computer sciences in 2019.
She expects to earn a master of science in biomedical engineering by 2019.
The university announced Barger will receive her doctorating degree on Monday.
“I’m excited about this and am looking forward to getting my degree,” she said.
“At Utah Tech and across the country, I’m seeing incredible growth and innovation in the areas of computer science and biomedical engineering.
This will allow me to continue my education and continue to be involved in these areas.”
