Mathematical Biology Seminar
In the previous week Nick Connolly discussed working in industry as a pure mathematician. As an alternative to traditional industry, national labs offer an intermediate step, of sorts, between academia and industry. In this talk I will discuss the opportunity I had to work at the Los Alamos National Laboratory with funding through the NSF-MSGI program https://orise.orau.gov/nsf-msgi/ . I will first discuss the application and selection process (at least how I experienced the process as an applicant). Then I will discuss the working experience at the lab and the expectations of graduate students through the NSF-MSGI program. Finally, I will briefly describe my work at the lab giving a conceptual overview of hybrid models which incorporate machine learning into physical models.
