Immediately after graduating with a Bachelors in Pure mathematics from Edinburgh University in 2017, I worked as a consultant for two different companies focused on Artificial Intelligence. I focused on research engineering where I had the chance to apply cutting-edge research to concrete problems in unsupervised decision-making and computer vision and these experiences made me realise that my main interest was in AI research, not engineering. Hence my decision to start a masters in applied mathematics at the Charles University of Prague, which would open the door to many interesting PhD programs.
