Are you interested in pursuing a career in applied math, computational science or data science, but are unsure what these paths look like?
Here it is the solution! The EPFL SIAM Student Chapter organizes the SIAM Career Event, a workshop in which three speakers from different industries with a background in Mathematics will present their academic and their working experience, and share useful insights (see the attached poster!). 

Invited speakers:

Matthew Wiener, Executive Director at CSL Behring (Bern, Switzerland), obtained a B.S. in Mathematics from MIT in 1987 and a Ph.D. in Mathematics from the University of Chicago in 1994. He has worked on mathematical modeling and various quantitative aspects of the pharmaceutical industry for the past 25 years with a focus on early research and vaccine manufacturing. Companies Matthew Wiener has worked for include the Merck Research Laboratories (US), the MSD IT Center (Prague, Czech Republic), and BMS (Boudry, Switzerland).

Justina Ivanauskaite, Director - Data Science Lead at MSD (Prague, Czech Republic), holds a B.S. in Econometrics from the Vilnius University and a M.S. in Econometrics from the University of Amsterdam. She leads a team of data scientists in the sales animal health division. Justina Ivanauskaite and her team use machine learning, optimization, simulation, and statistics to solve challenges in manufacturing, supply chain, and research and development.

Radu Popescu, Software Architect at Logitech (Lausanne, Switzerland), holds a Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics from EPFL. His work focuses on High Performance and Distributed Computing. Previously he worked as a software engineer at CERN and as a technical lead at ProtonMail (Geneva, Switzerland).

Each speaker will deliver a 25 minute presentation after which there will be an interactive Q&A session.

The event will be followed by a networking apéro!!!

Registration to the event is free, but mandatory (see the attached link!)

Hope to see all of you there!
