Alyson Wilson, a professor in the department of statistics at North Carolina State University, spoke at Smith College on March 31 as part of the SDNS Speakers Program. She discussed her work on assessing system reliability for complex U.S. Department of Defense systems and the application of data science to problems in the intelligence community. In addition, she participated in a Smith College Friday tea, where she discussed careers in statistics and data science with the students, and served as a mentor and judge in the Five College DataFest.

The SDNS Speakers Program provides travel support for statisticians who work in defense and security to give seminars describing their research in venues that will reach students.
