Alumni Featured in Fall 2021 Career Services Events

Dec 20 2021 | By Kristen Henlin, APAM Career Placement Officer

The Applied Physics and Applied Mathematics continued our alumni chat series during the Fall 2021 semester. We hosted undergraduate and graduate students for various discussions within their given fields.

During September, students had the opportunity to connect with Will Martin (MS ‘19, Medical Physics), a Medical Physicist at Montefiore Medical Center, and Datong Zhang (PhD ‘16, Applied Physics), a Technical Manager at ASML.

In October, Applied Mathematics alumnus Chaim Eisenbach (BS ‘20, Applied Physics) shared his experience as a Senior Consulting Analyst at Accenture. Preston Bradham (MS ‘19, Applied Mathematics) spoke to the department about his path as a Senior Consultant at EY. Michael Berkson (MS ‘18, Materials Science) also shared his experience as a Research Engineer at The Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory. We wrapped up the month with an Alumni chat from Aysha Khan (MS ‘19, Applied Mathematics), a member of the Engineering Staff at Lockheed Martin.

In November, the APAM Department hosted Kai Pak (MS ‘18, Applied Physics), a Data Scientist at NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory. We also connected with Colton Smith (MS ‘19, Applied Mathematics), a Quantitative Analyst at Millennium. Our department also had the unique opportunity to host APAM alumni at our first virtual Career Fair in October. Aimee Moses (MS ’20, Applied Mathematics), a Machine Learning Engineer at Expedition Technology, spoke with SEAS students about opportunities within her company. We also had the pleasure of collaborating with Rachael Keller (PhD ’21, Applied Mathematics), a Data Scientist at Dynetics Inc., regarding student recruitment.
