### Abstract

Matthew Zahr is a recent PhD graduate obtaining his degree in Computational and Mathematical Engineering from Stanford in 2016. He is now the Luis W. Alvarez Postdoctoral Fellow in the Mathematics Group of the Computational Research Division at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL). Having received the Department of Energy (DoE) Computational Science Graduate Fellowship, he did at least two summer internships as a graduate student in DoE labs, including at LBNL and Sandia National Lab. And, he works on computational, data science, and uncertainty problems which is a hot research area. Come enjoy informal discussions with him over lunch and get advice about internship/postdoc opportunities, mathematical careers at the DoE, etc.
