SIAM Committee on Science Policy

Having spent the last few days in Washington, D.C., I want to express special thanks to Nick Higham and Dave Levermore for inviting me to serve on the SIAM Committee on Science Policy. It has been very interesting to hear more about different aspects of national science policy and federal funding directly from the people directing these efforts. And I have been inspired seeing the many ways in which the members of this committee advocate for science. I’m truly honored to be part of this group.

If you want to learn more about what happens when the Committee visits Washington, I recommend the recent SIAM News article by Natalie Sheils, “Reflections from a SIAM Science Policy Fellowship Recipient.” Postdoctoral researchers and early career researchers interested in becoming new science policy fellows can submit applications through December 7.
