SGX3 2024 Pre-Internship Report: Beulah Karrolla

Each year, our Workforce Development team offers summer internships for students interested in developing their gateway development skills. For the summer of 2024, interns were placed at the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC). We will be sharing some of our 2024 student interns' experiences in a series of blog posts entitled SGX3 Summer Internship Reports as they start their summer internships. 

Featured below is SGX3 summer intern Beulah Karrolla, a student at the Ohio State University studying Master’s in Computer Science with research focus on Speech Technologies. 

  • What skills or knowledge are you hoping to gain during your internship?
    • Close-to industry experience in learning new technologies about API’s and exploring research domains. Also, working on group work and communication skills.
  • What motivated you into choosing this particular internship opportunity and how do you see that fitting into your future goals?
    • This is a campus-based research role, so for a just graduated master’s student like me this is a good bridging experience before moving into a full-time job.
  • What unique perspective or ideas do you hope to bring to the internship program this summer?
    • I have research experience in speech technologies and front end skills on tracking move movements in real-time and aligning them with user speech commands. Would be interested in applying speech research into other maps domain.
  • Please share with us what led you to study your degree and what is exciting to you about your area of focus?
    • After my bachelor’s and 2 years of full-stack development work at Oracle, I wanted to level-up my game and my first class on Speech and language technologies with Dr. Eric Fosler-Lussier instantly caught my attention to learn more about speech processing during my master’s program in computer science at OSU.
  • Austin is known for its exciting culture and activities. What are you most looking forward to doing while in Austin, TX?
    • I love traveling, traveling and traveling. Looking forward to exploring as much of Austin as possible. Exploring food, culture and places on the go.
