Sandia National Laboratories
Title: Applied mathematics at Sandia National Laboratories: a perspective from an engineering scientist
Time / Date: 4-5 PM Monday, October 17
Location: Blocker 220
Abstract: Sandia National Laboratories is a federally funded research and development center that develops and applies science, technology, and engineering solutions for pressing national security challenges. Mathematics at all levels of rigor underpins every aspect of the work we do, and Sandians with academic degrees in applied mathematics impact a wide range of areas such as alternative energy, space systems, microsystems, computational multiphysics, and neural computing. In this seminar, I will introduce Sandia and how mathematicians and statisticians contribute to its missions, and describe how Sandia’s extensive collaborative environment enriches their careers. In particular, I will expound on my personal exciting, multi-disciplinary experience at Sandia exemplified by challenging problems in smart deployable structures and design optimization. Finally, I will describe Sandia career opportunities and advise on how applied mathematicians and statisticians should approach a non-academic career search.
Location: Blocker Hall
Time / Date: 7-9:30 PM, October 28th
