    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Dr. Susan Sinnott, Pennsylvania State University

    Talk Title: Discovery and Design of Materials Across Length Scales

    Abstract: A driving force for research is the discovery and design of new materials to improve existing technologies or enable new applications. Material modeling methods are now widely applied in pursuit of this objective. This presentation will review the evolution of some common material modeling methods and their integration with cutting-edge experimental techniques. Illustrative applications will be discussed within the context of layered or two-dimensional materials and carbide-derived carbon materials. The presentation will conclude with a discussion of the future outlook of materials modeling within the context of material design and discovery.

    Biography: Susan B. Sinnott received her B.S. in chemistry from the University of Texas at Austin and her Ph.D. in physical chemistry from Iowa State University. She was a National Research Council Postdoctoral Associate at the Naval Research Laboratory and was on the faculty at the University of Kentucky prior to joining the University of Florida in 2000. In 2015 Susan joined the Pennsylvania State University as Professor and Department Head of Materials Science and Engineering. Research in the Sinnott Group is focused on the application of computational methods at the electronic-structure and atomic scales to examine a variety of materials and processes. These include the design of new materials and the investigation of the influence of grain boundaries, point defects, dopants, and heterogeneous interfaces on material properties.
    A major area of emphasis is the development of inventive methods to enable the modeling of new material systems at the atomic level. Susan is the author of over 250 technical publications, including over 220 refereed journal publications. She is a Fellow of the Materials Research Society, American Physical Society, American Ceramic Society, American Vacuum Society, and of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. Susan is a past President of the American Vacuum Society and is the Editor-in-Chief of Computational Materials Science

  • INCOSE, LA Chapter Speaker Meeting

    Tue, Sep 11, 2018 @ 06:30 PM - 07:30 PM

    Systems Architecting and Engineering, USC Viterbi School of Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: William Good, Vice President, The Cameron Group

    Talk Title: Lessons from 9/11 in the Context of the INCOSE CSEP (SEBOK) and PMI PMP Exams (PMBOK)

    Series: INCOSE-LA Speaker Series

    Abstract: On the 17th anniversary of 9/11, it is prudent to review the contributions that systems engineering and project management should be making towards the prevention of unconventional terrorist attacks using any of the many weapons of mass destruction (WMD) that could be deployed against America and/or other industrialized nations. We know that systems engineering and project management are extremely useful in the world of conventional weapons and funded government programs. What about unconventional methods like those used on 9/11? This presentation will review the application of systems engineering and project management principles to mitigate the risk of unconventional terrorist WMD attacks.

    Biography: William Good began his career as a pilot serving with the United States Marine Corps in Vietnam. After one combat tour followed by flight instructor and project officer duties, he left the Marine Corps to work as a systems engineer in the development program (aka SED) at EDS. While working on the Comprehensive Brokerage System (CBS) programming back office software for Wall Street, he completed an MBA in operations research at NYU. His subsequent career that covers many skill sets and industries included flying commercially for several airlines and surviving seven airline employer bankruptcies. His career illustrates the art of planning ahead and putting risk mitigation in place to manage the unexpected. In 2015, he left his position as an asset manager in warfighter support, integration, and training at the Missile Defense Integration and Operations Center (MDIOC) at Schriever AFB in Colorado Springs. Since then he has worked with The Cameron Group as a program manager and was promoted to the position of Senior Vice President more than a year ago. In this capacity, he is shepherding the Vehicle-Based Threat Detection System (VBTDS) through the process of full development and deployment across multiple non-government vehicle types within the private sector.

    One unique aspect of his educational background is that he taken more than 400 semester hours of coursework for credit and he has taught more than 400 semester hours of both undergraduate and graduate coursework. He earned 13 certifications from the Defense Acquisition University (DAU) while working for the Missile Defense Agency (MDA).
