Miloš Vukadinović (’22), a recent AUBG graduate with a double major in Mathematics and Computer Science, shares a few insights about his undergraduate studies and what led him to pursue a doctoral degree in Bioengineering at UCLA.
Miloš’s AUBG Experience
When talking about his decision to pursue undergraduate studies at AUBG, Miloš mentioned a few reasons, which include the affordability of education, close proximity to his home country Serbia, and the Liberal Arts system, “where the emphasis is not only on developing a narrow set of skills but critical thinking and problem-solving in general.”
“The mathematics classes I took at AUBG hold great importance to me as they provided me with a solid foundation to delve into my research, which lies at the intersection of machine learning, medical imaging, advanced computer science, and electrical engineering,” he said.
For Miloš, active participation in campus life lies at the core of character development. Throughout his undergraduate studies, he was a member of two student clubs, Polygon and The Hub, which played a significant role in his personal and professional development.
Looking into the future, Miloš shares his hopes that AUBG will allocate more resources to STEM programs, as they hold great potential for shaping the future of healthcare and technology.
Life after AUBG
Miloš attributes his decision to pursue a Ph.D. to his love for exploring and learning new things, which are essential qualities for doing research. After completing a research internship at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, he discovered his interest in Bioengineering and the ability to perform high-quality research.
“I believe that there is a lot of potential in integrating artificial intelligence into healthcare,” said Miloš. “By pursuing a Ph.D. in Bioengineering I get to be a part of the “AI in Medicine” revolution.”
While talking about his most recent accomplishment – a publication in Med Cell journal, Miloš shared his excitement and gratitude for the work and research opportunities. “I am proud and thankful to work with world-class researchers to develop medical software, publish research papers, and push the limits of scientific knowledge,” he said.
