Conversations with National Laboratories is a series of webinars with prominent researchers, who will talk and answer questions about their career paths, research, and recent trends at the National Labs.
Our first webinar from July 1, 2020, is now available to view with speaker Paul Miller, PhD.
Webinar 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.
