I learned different ways to analyze and visualize large amounts of data, various statistical analysis methods, as well as basic deep learning to look for trends. My favorite part was meeting researchers currently working at MIT during the small group sessions. I got exposure to the kinds of research other people are working on, and had the opportunity to ask people who are where I want to be (in terms of career path) how they got there, so that I am more prepared for my future as a researcher.
