Mathematics in Industry Seminar

We will be having Dr. Missy Gaddy talk as a part of our Mathematics in Industry Seminar this Thursday (10/1) at 2-3pm. Missy is a recent NCSU graduate and is now working for Evalueserve.

Abstract: Evalueserve is a global consulting company providing research and analytics solutions for Fortune 500 clients. Evalueserve has numerous focus areas including financial services, data analytics, and market intelligence, with an international presence in China, India, Chile, Europe, and the US. I am a mathematician in the Data Analytics practice currently working on a large-scale network optimization project with one of the top LTL freight carriers in the US. I work closely with our client to understand their business needs, and I formulate mathematical optimization models to provide recommendations for their network of distribution centers and linehaul routes throughout the US. During this talk, I will also speak about my experience from the job search and interview process.

SIAM Information for the Fall Semester

The Society of Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM), at the national/international level, is dedicated to the advancement of the application of mathematics and computational science, promoting research, and providing media for the exchange of information and ideas among fields. As a member of SIAM you will be able to benefit from, and contribute to, those goals.

What does that mean for you? First, NCSU students are eligible for a free membership in SIAM. Follow these directions to join SIAM:

Go to the SIAM member registration website (
Click on “Student”
Choose “Free Graduate Student” membership, then follow the directions on the website

We (the NCSU chapter of SIAM) will be hosting multiple events this semester. Due to current circumstances, all events will be online. So far we plan on having 3 industry related talks and a couple of graduate student talks/tutorials. These talks will be sent to the SIAM list once they are scheduled. Unfortunately, being online means there won’t be free food (very sad), but talks will still give excellent insight into different mathematical fields and what it’s like to work in industry, national labs and/or other sectors.

If you are interested in giving a talk/tutorial, or have a recommendation for someone to speak, please email Justen Geddes (!
