SPEC Student Experience:

Grace Wu

I greatly enjoyed my experience working at Talus Analytics. Everyone was so warm and welcoming and truly made me feel part of the team. As a research intern, I was assigned to a main project but was able to hop onto any other project or meetings I liked, which helped me gain a lot of exposure to how different teams operated in a company. They had me working on tasks where I could see my direct contribution to the company, which really inspired me to work my hardest. I had such a great experience at Talus and would recommend it to anyone looking for a welcoming family of extremely intelligent researchers and developers.
