Women in Science Career Path Seminar – Tara Drozdenko

Join us Wednesday, March 10th from 12-1 pm for GWIS Paths to Career Seminar with Dr. Drozdenko.

Dr. Drozdenko went into government and policy immediately post-PhD (and often science background people get put into defense) as an Operations research analyst in the Navy- helped Navy to develop tactics to prevent attack while at port. Then had to analyze bombs during the Iraq War. She then transitioned into the Arms Control Bureau as a physical scientist- moved to the financial sanctions world and did terrorist sanctions (Foreign Affairs Specialist, Counter-terrorism office). Now she is the Managing director for nuclear policy at the outrider foundation (nonprofit here in Madison).
