"What does being in a Business Advisory Council - Computer Science department at a University mean?" - Rose-Gaëlle
With Rose-Gaëlle VP Morgan Stanley & BAC Auburn University
This week I had the honor to speak to Rose-Gaëlle on a part 1 series of her talk; please listen to part 2 next week same time, and you can watch the entire interview on YoutTube, or listen to all podcasts. Rose-Gaëlle's ("R-G") fascination with technology started at an early age. Her family’s home in Yaoundé, the capital of Cameroon, had a large library where as a young girl, Rose-Gaëlle spent many days reading from a book about inventors and their creations, which sparked her curiosity. “I wanted to be that person -- the one whose inventions made an impact and changed the game," she says.
In high school, she focused on mathematics and physics, and after moving to the U.S., she earned her bachelor's and master's degrees in Software Engineering at Auburn University, where she was also a Graduate Research Assistant in the school’s Intelligent and Interactive Systems Laboratory. She also earned a bachelor’s degree in Liberal Arts from Oglethorpe University as part of a dual-degree program.
After a completing a summer internship in Morgan Stanley’s Prime Brokerage Technology department, Rose-Gaëlle joined the firm’s Technology Analyst Program (TAP) in 2012. She currently works with the User Interface Engineering team, where she focuses on building and maintaining many of the firm’s mobile applications.
