A Varied and Winding Math Career in Industry

Industrial Problems Seminar

Laura Lurati (Edward Jones)


In this talk, I'll share my personal career path as an applied mathematician both from the perspective of the various industries I've worked in (aerospace, finance, real estate, and software engineering) and my own transition from an individual contributor to management. I'll give an overview of the types of problems I worked on in each of these fields and the common skills that have helped me throughout my career. Finally, I will share some of my work as a builder of high-performing teams, the rewards of management, and what I look for in candidates when hiring new teammates.  As a key message, I hope to share that a career in applied mathematics can take very interesting turns if you are open to new possibilities and continual learning.
