In this presentation Dr. Ben-Gal will speak about her experiences as an Industrial Mathematician and Data Scientist. Since leaving academia she has applied mathematical expertise to real-world problems and delved into many new areas of mathematics research, while simultaneously gaining breadth in other STEM fields and leading DEI efforts at 3M and nationally. She will discuss multiple technologies and products that her lab developed and commercialized over the past decade, all holding Applied Mathematics at their core, and the insights and challenges that frequently arise when taking mathematics from the textbook to the lab bench and beyond. She will also provide advice and insight for those interested in exploring industry as either a career choice or source of future collaborations.
