Speaker: Paul Miller, LLNL

Abstract: From Princeton and subsequently to California and working at LLNL, my path to working at a national laboratory seemed in the moment like a sequence of unfolding chance events. However, my satisfaction with the outcome suggests underlying factors may have been in play. I will provide a perspective on that, then focus on discussing opportunities within LLNL, starting with some fundamental qualities of the organization that my coworkers and I value so much. I will discuss our planetary-defense (asteroid-deflection) project, using it as an example of the wide variety of work that is conducted at the Lab.
