EECS Lunch and Learn with Industry Series: Life and Times (and Careers) at A National Research Laboratory by David Manz and Jessica Smith, PNNL: Working at a National Lab is unlike working anywhere else; we are a fusion of academia, industry, and government that takes us down unique research and development paths. Join us to learn about the exciting computational, engineering, analytical, and cyber security research and development underway at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory. Come with questions for Jess Smith (WSU alum) and David Manz, PhD (adjunct professor, WSU). We will describe a day in the life of a researcher and provide a few examples of the exciting projects in critical infrastructure, control systems, data science, software engineering, and more.
