The SIAM Student chapter will be hosting a Mathematics in Industry seminar at 3:00 PM on March 3, 2022 in Poe Hall 228. Our speaker will be Jared Cook.
Abstract: Jared finished his Ph.D. in Applied Math at NC State two years ago and since then has been working at Teledyne Technologies in their Intelligent Systems Lab. During that time he primarily worked on DARPA contracts, but also worked on internal research and development projects. He will be discussing his work on a power lines detection R&D project where he used computer vision to detect power lines in drone imagery. He has recently started a new position at MetLife as a Senior Research Scientist and will be answering questions about his former and new job as well as his experience job searching.
