It’s been a very full and exciting year at IPAM, and we invite you to read about it in our 2016 newsletter! In this issue, we feature:

  • Matthias Scheffler (Fritz Haber Institute in Berlin and UC Santa Barbara) who studies computational materials science to solve equations that could lead to novel materials discovery, and participated in several long programs on the subject. He will be in-residence at IPAM for our 2016 long program on Understanding Many-Particle Systems with Machine Learning;
  • Susana Serna (Autonomous University of Barcelona) who brings a wealth of research and mentoring experiences to her first year as director of IPAM’s Research in Industrial Projects for Students (RIPS) program, and discusses the great satisfaction of working with undergraduates as they tackle real-world research projects with mathematical tools; and
  • Stephen DeSalvo (UCLA) who introduced his undergraduate students to visiting researchers participating in IPAM’s 2016 long program on Culture Analytics. Their collaboration resulted in cross-disciplinary research, and also enabled the students to explore careers in data science.
