Join us for a conversation with Ozan Varol. Ozan is a rocket scientist turned award-winning professor and author. A native of Istanbul, Turkey, he learned English as a second language and moved to the United States by himself at 17 to attend Cornell University and major in astrophysics.
While there, he served on the operations team for the 2003 Mars Exploration Rovers project that sent two rovers–Spirit and Opportunity–to Mars. He built stuff that went to the red planet and wrote code that snaps photos of the Martian surface.
Ozan is the author of Think Like a Rocket Scientist: Simple Strategies You Can Use to Make Giant Leaps in Work and Life and recently spoke with Heather Hoerle, EMA’s Executive Director and CEO at the opening of our online annual conference.
