Global Issues Colloquium Examines Government Science

As part of the Global Issues Colloquium series, Corey Hudson, manager at Sandia National Laboratories, will present a talk at 7 p.m. March 17 via Zoom.

In his talk Hudson will discuss the way his personal journey in science has developed in the context of doing high-consequence research for the U.S. Department of Energy. His work started as a postdoc involved in projects as disparate as identifying industrially relevant enzymes for biomanufacturing, sequencing and assembling the genomes of antibiotic resistant bacterial and studying their evolution and building databases of mobile genetic elements. As a staff member he had the opportunity to serve as lab coordinator and government liaison for the Sierra Leone Ebola response effort, help develop new software and algorithms for synthetic biology and help build a field called “Digital Biosecurity.”

Since becoming a manager, Hudson has built a research portfolio around modeling carbon capture by soils, protecting vaccine production facilities and using high performance computing for antibody design. In just over a decade, he has engaged in research spanning topics related to global issues in public health, climate change and biosecurity.
