SpeakerWillie May

Theme:My Improbable Journey: From the Projects in Birmingham, Alabama to Leading the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology and Beyond

报告摘要:

有时候,即使是身处最困难的境遇,其实也是在为获得非常积极的结果奠定基础。威利·梅于20世纪50年代末、60年代初在阿拉巴马州伯明翰市长大。在他的成长过程中,他从未想过自己会成为一名科学家、然后成为一名高级研究与发展领袖,再然后成为美国国家标准与技术研究院院长,一个拥有12亿美元年度预算和研究领域获得五项诺贝尔奖的世界闻名科学机构。此次讲座,梅博士将为我们讲述隐藏在显而易见的困难中走向成功的优势。讲座内容涵盖他小学、中学和大学阶段的教育;他从橡树岭气体扩散厂的一名化学实验员到美国国家标准与技术研究院的45年职业生涯的专业领域的经历;他担任研究员、研究主管、美国商务部标准与技术副部长、美国国家标准与技术研究院院长、国际计量委员会副主席以及国际计量化学和生物咨询委员会主席的职责。

讲座最后将会针对科学、技术、工程、数学领域的重视度和培养做常规性的探讨以及从国家和个人角度探讨为什么这些领域如此重要。

Report Abstract:

Sometimes even the most difficult circumstances lay the foundation for very positive outcomes. Willie May grew up in Birmingham, Alabama, in the late 1950s and early 1960s. It never occurred to him growing up that he would become a scientist, then a senior research and development leader, and then Director of the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology, a world-renowned scientific agency with a $1.2 billion annual budget and research leading to five Nobel Prizes. In this talk, Dr. May will talk about the advantages hidden among the more visible obstacles to success. The talk will cover his primary, secondary, and academic training; his professional history, beginning as a bench chemist at the Oak Ridge Gaseous Diffusion Plant, thru his 45-year career at NIST. Details will be shared about his activities as a researcher, research manager, and ultimately his responsibilities as Department of Commerce Under Secretary for Standards and Technology and Director of the National Institute of Standards and Technology, Vice President of the International Committee on Weights and Measures (CIPM); and President of the CIPM’s Consultative Committee on Metrology in Chemistry and Biology.

The talk will conclude with a general discussion of the need for additional emphasis and training in STEM and why it’s important from both a national perspective and personal perspective.
