In this episode, I talk with Suneer Verma, Strategy Manager for Edwards Life Sciences. After earning bachelor’s and master’s degrees in India, Suneer came to the United States for graduate school. However, he soon discovered that he was not interested in bench research, and so explored other career options, particularly around business and consulting. After earning his PhD in Human Biology (Inflammation), Suneer first worked as a Life Sciences Consultant, and then changed jobs to become a Strategy Manager. We’ll talk about the experiences that informed his educational and career path, hear his thoughts on networking and gaining experience for jobs in business, and of course find out what his job is like.
