How training in Physics is relevant to work at Google

As promised, I gave a talk at the Pacific Northwest Association of College Physicists conference today.  The topic was Physics at Google, or more specifically, “How a background in physics helps to solve Google’s engineering challenges.  Real-world examples of how making the world’s information accessible and useful leans on the principals of physics.”  My slides from the talk are available here.

Preparing for this talk has been a lot of fun.  I’m guessing it will be fun to deliver as well.  (I’m writing this to be posted immediately after my talk, so I can’t know for sure yet!)  The whole process reminds me how much I love my career — the huge impact I can have on making people’s lives better.  This particular talk was a very good reminder to me how much I rely on my training as a scientist to perform this job.
