When interviewed by Authority Magazine’s Fotis Georgiadis last fall, Chris shared: “one must always listen – as you’re never as smart as you think you are, and anyone can have a good idea. The smartest people are frequently those who listen the most.” Indeed, such wisdom is essential for today’s leaders in the fast-moving world of science, technology, and engineering.

Register today, for this exclusive Seattle alumni gathering with Techer, Chris Diorio, as he shares lessons learned along his most dynamic career.

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.
