After more than 20 fantastic years at Sandia, I am calling it quits this coming summer. I am forever indebted to my wonderful Sandia colleagues, past and present, who made my years at Sandia incredibly rewarding. I will be an independent researcher and consultant under the auspices of my business called MathSci.ai.
LIVERMORE, Calif. - Tamara Kolda of Sandia National Laboratories has spent a career finding mathematical patterns in data sets ranging from mouse neurons to crime statistics, so when she talks about how ‘magical’ the results seem, even experts in other fields take notice. olda was one of 87 members elected to the National Academy of Engineering this year - one of a handful of mathematicians ever granted membership.
We’re all in a lot of virtual meetings these days thanks to COVID-19. As we continue to shelter at home, I’ve been trying to optimize my online meeting experience. In this post, I share what I consider to be best practices.
Humbled to announce that I’m one of the 87 new members of the National Academy of Engineering.
Just in time for the 2019-2020 interview season, I’m resurfacing posts with interview advice including asking good questions during interviews and preparing interview talks.
Happy to report that I’ve been named a 2019 ACM Fellow for innovations in algorithms for tensor decompositions, contributions to data science, and community leadership.
I am excited to announce that the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine has convened an ad hoc committee of experts to prepare narratives and graphics to identify and illustrate the impact of the mathematical sciences, and I am chairing the committee.
At SIAM CSE19, I presented a talk on a DOE Lab Perspective on CSE Education which included specific recommendations for graduate education. Several persons asked for the slides, which are available here.
As a preview, the recommendations are…
(CSE = Computational Science & Engineering)
SIMODS has published its first set of articles.
