How did you get interested in Data Science?

My PhD thesis work involved application of machine learning/data-mining techniques for inferring grammars for building DSLs. After working a few years in industry I was exposed to Big Data techniques in the web systems realm. From there I have build on my interest in all things related to Big Data.

Which aspect(s) of data science do you consider yourself best able to contribute to? 1. Computer science, 2. Mathematics, 3. Visualization, or 4. Domain expert/storyteller or some combination? Please explain.
