My name is Taylor Matalone, and I’m an alumni of
the University of Washington. Three summers ago, I was selected to
participate in the Physio-Control Inc. Internship Program. Through my
position, not only did I gain valuable work experience,
mentorship, and build my resume in my field; but I gained exposure to
aspects of sales, marketing, finance, and engineering at a FDA regulated
medical device company.
We are currently recruiting interns for our 2014 Summer Internship Program. We will be hosting an Information Session on
November 13th, at 6pm at the Mary Gates Career Center. (http://careers.washington.edu/Calendar#/?i=1) Please pass this along to engineering
students seeking PAID summer internship opportunities.
This will be an opportunity for students to meet
our recruiters, to learn more about Physio-Control and to experience our
life saving mission.
My name is Beth Scholler and I am an intern working with the Center for Experiential Learning & Diversity (EXPD)
this year. I am a 2nd year MSW student who received my
undergraduate degrees at UW. My undergraduate experience was made
possible through a Martin Scholarship from the Office of Merit
Scholarships, Fellowships & Awards. It was further enriched
by my participation with several other programs in EXPD: I was a Civic
Fellow with the Carlson Center, a project leader for the MLK Day of
Service, a Pipeline tutor, and a session assistant for the Undergraduate
Research Symposium. I am very familiar with
the programs in EXPD and excited about the chance to introduce students
to the vast array of opportunities to be found here.
internship focuses on outreach, recruitment and support for students in
all 9 programs with EXPD. I look forward
to working individually with students who are exploring their options
in community engagement, research, and scholarships. Together, we can
wade through the numerous opportunities afforded by each program,
helping students to determine the next steps for achieving
this week and continuing throughout the academic year (not including
quarterly breaks) I will have
drop-in hours on Thursdays from 1pm-4pm. I will also be holding an info
session on November 19 which will give an overview of the nine programs
Carlson Center, Early Identification Program, Global Opportunities,
Jumpstart, Mary Gates Endowment for Students, Office of Merit
Scholarships, Fellowships & Awards, Pipeline, Ronald E. McNair
and Undergraduate Research Program.

Winter is just around the corner, which means it’s time to start thinking about the 2014 Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service! MLK, Jr. Day of Service is on January 20th, 2014, and the University of Washington Carlson Leadership & Public Service Center is partnering with the United Way of King County to coordinate a county-wide event honoring the life and legacy of Dr. King. Each year, this event engages over a thousand volunteers in service projects from all over the Greater King County region.
We are currently recruiting for Project Leaders! Project leaders select a specific service
site, and are responsible for recruiting volunteers to participate in their project. They will sign volunteers up with United Way, and help with facilitation at Kickoff and their service site during the Day of Service. Project Leader Registration Opens November 12th!
What does it mean to be a Project Leader? Tasks include:
• Recruit volunteers to join your MLK Day project
• Communicate with your host organization
• Communicate with volunteers who sign up for your project
• Use the United Way online registration system to sign upand register group members
• Help frame why this event & your specific service project are important for the volunteers
• Coordinate t-shirt pick for your group members
If you are unable to fill your project with people you know, there will be an opportunity to open your project up to individual volunteers in early January!
We will be holding two Project Leader Info Sessions. These sessions are not mandatory, but are a great opportunity to learn more about signing up for a project and recruiting volunteers, as well as using United Way of King County’s interface.
You may attend one of the following Project Leader Info Sessions:
Thursday, November 7, 4-5pm in MGH 173R
Tuesday, November 13, 12-1pm in MGH 171E
If you are interested in participating in the Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service, but don’t want to be a Project Leader, registration for individuals will open on January 3.
Please join the Clean Energy Institute for its inaugural lecture!
clean energy to the inhabitants of our planet is a major challenge to
future generations. This talk will give my perspectives on this
challenge in general
terms and on how nanoscience and new nano-materials may contribute to
addressing this challenge.

special attention to nanoscience and its relevance to energy-related
applications. Professor Dresselhaus has published over 1600 papers and
has also made numerous influential contributions
to graphite, graphite intercalation compounds, fullerenes, carbon
nanotubes, and nanostructured thermoelectrics.
Dresselhaus was presented numerous awards over the years, including the
National Medal of Science in 1990 in recognition of her work on
of materials as well as expanding the opportunities of women in science
and engineering; the 11th Annual Heinz Award in 2005 in the category of
Technology, the Economy and Employment; the Oersted Medal in 2008; the
Enrico Fermi Award in 2012 (along with Burton
Richter); and the Kavli Prize in 2012 “for her pioneering contributions
to the study of phonons, electron-phonon interactions, and thermal
transport in nanostructures”; and the 2013 International Thermoelectric
Society Outstanding Achievement Award.
Dresselhaus has been a prominent leader in promoting science and
technology. She has
served as President of the American Physical Society, President of the
American Association for the Advancement of Science, and treasurer of

Data-intensive Scientific Workflow and “Big Data” in Transportation Research
The Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP2) Naturalistic Driving Study
is a cornerstone of transportation safety research, led by the Virginia
Tech Transportation Institute (VTTI). VTTI researchers innovated the
naturalistic driving study methodology, and previous VTTI efforts, for
example the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) "100
Car" study, have made ground-breaking contributions to the field of
transportation safety. The SHRP2 study observes over 3,000 participants in
their normal day-to-day driving to understand how the driver interacts with
and adapts to the vehicle, traffic environment, roadway characteristics,
traffic control devices, and the environment. The study concludes data
collection in December 2013, resulting in a repository of over 1.5PB of
heterogeneous data, with expected useful life of over 20 years.
In this talk, we will discuss the data challenges of naturalistic driving
studies and peta-scale data-intensive science. These data in various ways
satisfy the "volume, velocity, and variety" we often associate with "Big
Data", while at the same time being gathered in a rather "data collection
hostile" environment. This presents some unique challenges not only of
scale but data management and quality. The infrastructure to manage and
analyze these data are as varied as the data, with peta-scale cluster file
systems, parallel databases, and compute clusters. Mr Gaylord will describe
various aspects of these challenges and how they are addressed, from VTTI's
data center architecture to data models, as well as sharing some "lessons
learned". The design of VTTI's scalable "agent-based" workflow engine will
also be described in some detail.
Mr. Clark Gaylord is the chief information officer for the Virginia Tech
Transportation Institute (VTTI) and director of VTTI's data center
operations. He is the principal architect of VTTI's "Scientific Data
Warehouse", integrating high-performance computing, parallel database, and
peta-scale file system technologies to enable VTTI's data-intensive
scientific research. Since 2008, Mr. Gaylord has led VTTI's strategic
direction for information technology, data center infrastructure, "Big
Data" data management and analysis.
Mr. Gaylord has been at Virginia Tech in various capacities for over twenty
years and has held several roles of IT leadership. Prior to joining VTTI,
he was IT Operations Lead with the Virginia Bioinformatics Institute and
Lead Research Engineer with Virginia Tech's Telecommunications Auxiliary.
VTTI's was the recipient of CIO Magazine's "CIO 100" award in 2012 for the
effective use of large scale data intensive and high performance computing
