Description: The Chicago Public Library is highlighting Argonne scientists in a three-part speaker series entitled, “We Are Argonne.” This series will connect some of the lab’s world class community of talented scientists and engineers with the science-curious public interested in hearing firsthand about their work that is leading to exciting discoveries and innovations.
In recognition of Women’s History Month, two women who lead science divisions at Argonne will kick off the speaker series. Cristina Negri and Valerie Taylor are Division Directors at Argonne. Cristina leads the Environmental Science Division and Valerie heads the lab’s Mathematics and Computer Science Division. Their respective fields of expertise converge at the intersection of computing and climate change. With supercomputers and artificial intelligence, Valerie’s mathematicians help Cristina’s environmental scientists build climate change models that allow communities to respond faster and adapt smarter. Valerie and Cristina’s teams also join forces to pursue environmental justice for all.
Be part of the Chicago Public Library audience and join Cristina and Valerie for a conversation on their impactful work and their leadership as women in science.
