Aaron Larson

After graduating, Larson started his career in the translation/localization industry as a project manager for translation projects, which included translations for clients such as Nike, Intel, Nvidia, and others in the software and (computer) hardware industry. He did this for about five years and learned that he had a knack for project management in general.  Last year, he decided to take on a project management position at Oregon Health & Science University, OHSU, where he works on the management of cancer research projects related to bioinformatics and genomics.  “I am very happy with this position as it pulls from my strengths in project management and I enjoy being on a university campus in the advancement of research,” Larson said.  While he now only speaks, reads, and listens to German in his free time, one of his mentors, an OHSU faculty member from Switzerland, helps him keep up with his German proficiency.
