Speaking at PNACP Spring Conference
I’ve been invited to give a talk at the Spring meeting of the Pacific Northwest Association for College Physics. The theme of the conference is “The Unknown Physicist.” Along those lines I will be giving a talk about Physics at Google, and how a background in physics helps to solve Google’s engineering challenges. I’ll give some real-world examples of how Google’s mission of making the world’s information universally accessible and useful leans on the principals of physics.
I’m quite excited about being invited to speak in this forum. Science and physics in particular have always been very close to my heart. Although I spend my days working on what I consider very practical problems compared to pure science of physics, I always enjoy musing on the underlying rules that govern our universe.
The conference is in Portland at the Pacific University of Oregon on April 16th and 17th. If you have reason or occasion to attend, I encourage you to do so.
