IDIES to host new bimonthly seminar series

From IDIES Associate Director Charles Meneveau:


We have the great pleasure to announce that IDIES will hold a bimonthly seminar series. Typically we will hold two such seminars every academic semester. The talks will take place in the Mason Hall Auditorium (but occasionally in other rooms as available), usually from 4 to 5 p.m. on Thursdays, followed by a small informal reception.

Our first speaker will be our very own Prof. Mauro Maggioni, Bloomberg Distinguished Professor of Mathematics and Applied Math and Statistics. He will discuss high-dimensional methods for approximating high-dimensional dynamical systems. The seminar is at 4 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 23, in Mason Hall. See the flier to read the abstract.

The next IDIES seminar will be given by Dr. Dean Evasius from the National Science Foundation, who will discuss graduate educational aspects in the era of big data. His seminar will take place on Thursday, April 13; details to follow.

For the fall semester, if you have a suggestion for a distinguished speaker to visit and make a presentation on the broad topics of interest to IDIES, please contact me at your earliest convenience.

Best wishes,

Charles Meneveau
