In this talk Dr. Cecilia Aragon will describe her journey from extremely fearful daughter of immigrants to daredevil airshow pilot — and then to using supercomputers to solve some of the greatest mysteries of the universe. She’ll present examples from a 30-year career in aviation, astrophysics, and data science; and talk about how using math to face her fears enabled her to become the first Latina pilot on the US Unlimited Aerobatic Team. She scaffolded that courage to build a career in data science, developing the new field of human-centered data science, and becoming the first Latina to achieve the rank of Full Professor in the College of Engineering at the University of Washington in its 100-year history.
