Professor Michael Stumm (ECE), a self-described "techie,"
sat down with Future Magazine
to talk about technology, innovation, regulation, traders’ rights and the future of the company he now heads called Oanda.
Professor Strumm is a faculty member in The Edward S. Rogers Sr. Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering
The engineer, who earned a doctorate in computer science from the University of Zurich and holds five patents, also goes into great detail about why teaching talented youngsters at U of T is so important.
"I like interacting with
bright, young minds. It keeps me young and energized, and a large part
of my career is catapulting young people into their career path," he said. "I do
that at the University, but I also do that at the company. You hire
young people and help them build their careers. That is very gratifying.
There are advantages in both directions."
