Former PSU postdoc returns to inspire

Former postdoc and current Intel employee, Dr. Kirill Voronin, returns to department to speak with students.

A few years ago, Dr. Kirill Voronin moved from Siberia to Portland to work as a postdoctoral research scholar in 
the Fariborz Maseeh Department of Mathematics & Statistics. Immediately after his postdoctoral appointment, under the supervision of professor Panayot Vassilevski, he took up a position at Intel. At the invitation of the student chapter of SIAM (Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics) at PSU, called SIAMpdx, he returned to the department on May 15, 2019 to meet our graduate students, give a talk on how advanced numerical analysis is used in research and development at the world-renowned Intel MKL group, and inspire students to take up careers involving advanced mathematics.
