Dr. Ilse Ipsen, a professor in the Department of Mathematics at North Carolina State University, goes in-depth about how mathematicians can use the
Monte Carlo method, and other tools, to wrestle with the deluge of data emerging from the wide variety of scientific research areas.
Dr. Ipsen's research interests include numerical linear algebra, matrix theory, numerical analysis, randomized algorithms, and others. She has written countless papers and software regarding her research as well as on the Monte Carlo method and its use on big data. Also, Dr. Ipsen is the associate director for the
Statistical and Applied Mathematical Institute (SAMSI). SAMSI focuses on forging a synthesis of statistical sciences and applied mathematical sciences with disciplinary science to tackle difficult, yet important data- and model-driven scientific challenges.
In this podcast, Dr. Ipsen speaks with associate editor, Katie Burke,
about her research and viewpoints on using the Monte Carlo method and

PODCAST & VIDEO: Engineering Around Extreme Events
Extreme events, such as super floods and hurricanes, are becoming more common, so civil engineers are trying to adapt civil infrastructure such as bridges to these unpredictable and sometimes devastating meteorological events. Engineer Ana Barros discusses how engineering can prepare us for extreme weather events, but also how changing climate and population conditions can affect the ability of infrastructure to hold up over time.
