Mr. Peter Breunig served as General Manager of Technology Management and Architecture at Chevron IT. Mr. Breunig spent over 30 years at Chevron in upstream technical support, application and research. He has been Chairman of Oil and Gas Customer Advisory Board at Maana, Inc. since September 2015.
Andrew Connolly has been a Professor at the University of Washington since 2007. His work focuses on using large surveys to study cosmology and the evolution of galaxies. This ranges from studying the clustering of galaxies and their evolution with redshift, weak gravitational lensing of galaxies, and estimating the properties of galaxies based on their colors (aka photometric redshifts).
The common theme to his work is addressing the need for massive data sets and how to work with them. One area that interests him a lot at the moment is the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST) where he leads the development of simulations of what LSST might observe. Beyond cosmology, he is also interested in how to make the technologies that companies use to search the internet useful in research and education. As part of this, a couple of years ago he was on sabbatical at Google where he created “Google Sky.”
Director, Center for the Study of Higher and Postsecondary Education; Professor
Lisa R. Lattuca is Professor of Higher Education in the School of Education, and also holds a faculty appointment in Integrative Systems and Design in the College of Engineering. She studies curriculum, teaching, and learning in college and university settings, with a particular focus on how curricular, instructional, and organizational conditions, as well as disciplinary cultures, shape students’ educational experiences and learning outcomes. Her research most often focuses on engineering and STEM education contexts, and often focuses on learning in interdisciplinary programs and settings.
Specifically, Dr. Lattuca has published research on the structure and impact of interdisciplinary major programs on undergraduate learning, and on the development of undergraduate engineers’ interdisciplinary competence. …She was also previously project director and co-principal investigator of a national study that investigated the impact of the implementation of outcomes-based accreditation criteria on engineering programs and student learning.
Alfred P. Sattelberger was the Deputy Laboratory Director for Programs, Chief Research Officer, and Senior Intelligence Official at Argonne National Laboratory. He was responsible for managing the interactions of Argonne’s scientific programs with federal, state, and local stakeholders, including DOE and other sponsors, and for building relationships with other national laboratories, the university community, and international collaborators that enable new groundbreaking research and large-scale programs.
Sattelberger retired from Argonne in 2017 after serving as the Associate Laboratory Director (ALD) for Physical, Biological and Computing Sciences, ALD for Physical Sciences, Interim ALD for Applied Sciences and Technology, and ALD for Energy Engineering and Systems Analysis.
An Executive Design Director at IDEO, Mike is passionate about using science and design to improve business and society. He works to continuously push IDEO’s abilities in data science, maintain and sharpen IDEO’s human-centered focus, and explore creative ways to realize the positive potential of data and algorithms.
Mike joined IDEO through the acquisition of Datascope, the data science consulting company he co-founded in 2009. At Datascope, Mike led and contributed to projects across a variety of industries for clients such as Google, Procter & Gamble, Thomson Reuters, Bristol-Myers Squibb, and Steelcase. He also worked on the business of Datascope and strove to support everyone in doing excellent, meaningful work.
