Nock is an assistant professor in civil and environmental engineering, and in engineering and public policy (at Carnegie Mellon University. Her research is focused on applying optimization and decision analysis tools to evaluate the sustainability and reliability of the electricity grid in disparate energy systems.  Specifically, she uses mathematics to answer questions like “how can we make power systems more sustainable and equitable?”

This is part of our regular Geoscience Seminar Series.

Professor Jay Mills of the Psychology Department will present a talk about The Report—not the recent (must-see) movie, but about the 2015 Hoffman Report that followed the 2014 New York Times revelation of psychologists’ involvement in the torture of detainees after the attacks of 9/11.

With so much “Breaking News” these days, it might be easy to miss the renewed accounts of involvement of psychologists in designing and implementing the so-called “enhanced interrogation” techniques, a twisted euphemism for torture. Professor Mills will guide our revisit to this dark story so it will not be easily forgotten.

“Reflections on the Hoffman Report” by Jay Mills in the Pennsylvania Psychologist
