"I think in terms of expectations, from not knowing a whole lot about all of the possible applications of agriculture and agbioscience, I don't want to be a farmer, so I am not sure I want to go into the Ag industry. But there are a ton of applications. There's what I work on technology and software development, the bioscience aspect- research and development, marketing, etc. There's a lot of applications at companies that draw people in from very diverse backgrounds."
