Every other week we spotlight an OMSCS TA, so you can get to know who's behind the screen. Here are four questions for Mike Romano who TAs CS 6440: Introduction to Health Informatics.
What do you do professionally?
I currently work in Client Operations at Cerner (Malvern PA campus).
Why do you TA for OMSCS?
I had some amazing experiences with the TAs when I was a student, so this is my way of giving back and trying to provide that same experience for others.
What's your advice for future students in OMSCS?
There will be times when you get down on yourself and feel overwhelmed, but stick to your plan and persevere. The end result is well worth it.
What's your preferred programming language and why?
I tend to gravitate towards Python because not only is it intuitive from an interactive perspective, but I find that the same applies in conveying its concepts to a student audience.
