About us

Welcome to the home page of the SIAM Graduate Student Chapter (SIA&M) at Texas A&M University in College Station. The purpose of this organization is to promote interdisciplinary collaboration among graduate students, to provide a platform where graduate students can practice and improve their presentation skills, and to facilitate interactions among graduate students and faculty both inside the Mathematics department as well as with other Science and Engineering departments.

The main activity of SIA&M is co-organizing the Industrial and Applied MathSeminar.

We also host a Social Event every month.

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.
