The Joys Of Industrial Mathematics

Abstract/Media

After about five years in academia, with NSF grants, a bunch of publications, and a couple of awards for my articles, I realized that the academic life didn’t work for me personally or intellectually. So, I reinvented myself as an industrial mathematician.

I am glad I did I made the transition. I have worked on some very interesting projects in a wide range of fields. I have the enjoyed seeing my work having practical impact. And, I have had great colleagues and get to mentor some very some intelligent and motivated junior staff.

 

In this discussion, I will share some of my industry experiences, lessons learned about the industrial mindset, and some of the current math problems being tackled today by industry.
