Where are you working? Title? Oracle/Oracle Cloud, software engineer

How did you get your job?  I met a recruiter at the FIU career fair this fall, and she invited me to interview with Oracle Cloud. A few weeks later, I was thrilled to receive a job offer to join the Oracle Cloud team as a software engineer. I am incredibly grateful for this opportunity and look forward to working with and learning from everyone on this team. I am also grateful to my recruiter, who made the process so easy.

Mark joined the Sustainability, Optimization and Learning for Interdependent networks laboratory (solid lab) at the FIU College of Engineering and Computing as an undergraduate research assistant supported by an Opportunities for Undergraduate Research and Scholarships (OURS) Program scholarship. M. Hadi Amini was his mentor, and his research focused on the theory of social dynamics, data analytics and resilient networks.

Mark contributed to multiple research projects while at FIU, including a recent study that explored the impact the COVID-19 pandemic is having on the economy. He also contributed to a project on distributed decision-making algorithms for large-scale critical infrastructures.
