In this episode, we talk to Louis Aaron, a senior at Princeton working on a geotechnical software program to help geotechnical engineers record soil data in the field and why he thinks it will be the future of geotechnical engineering.
Here Are Some of the Questions We Ask Aaron:
- How did your interest in the geotechnical field started?
- As someone whose academic focus is on data and data analysis, what was it about the geotechnical engineering industry that caught your attention during your time at your internship?
- Since returning to school to finish your degree, you started building a product to solve some of these problems. Can you give us a sense of what that solution looks like, and tell us why you think it doesn’t exist yet?
- Why do you believe this class of software is the future of geotechnical engineering, and what does it mean for engineers’ careers today?
- Where are you with your solution now, and how can people get involved?
- What advice would you like to give to geotechnical engineers out there?
