You won’t become a SME in school. If there’s a topic you want to get deep on then work a couple projects, write a white paper, and get a conference speaking engagement.

Oh I agree with that too, just wanted to make the point that there is a path in academia to become a SME

Can I just say how proud I am of how this bowl reacted to this post?

Outstanding work, team.
