FEASTPACK is MATLAB software for creating large-scale artificial graphs that match a given degree distribution (i.e., the same distribution of edges) and a given clustering coefficient distribution (i.e., the same distribution of 3-cycles).
MathSci.ai is the consulting company of Tammy Kolda and is based in Dublin, California. Dr. Kolda holds a Ph.D. and has over two decades of scientific research experience in mathematical and computational data science, with deep expertise in tensor decompositions for data analysis. She has published extensively, given keynote and plenary lectures at various international conferences, and worked on practical problems in application domains from science, medicine, and business. Her work has been cited over 20,000 times. Her consulting has different flavors, including strategic advice on machine learning research and development that is tailored to the customer’s specific data domain, in-depth technical consulting, development of specialized training courses on tensor decompositions (textbook forthcoming), evaluation of candidates for academic appointments, etc. Inquires about consulting can be sent to the email listed below.
Tamara Kolda is an independent mathematical consultant under the auspices of her company MathSci.ai based in California. She is also a Distinguished Visiting Professor in the Department of Industrial Engineering & Management Science at Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois. From 1999-2021, she was a researcher at Sandia National Laboratories in Livermore, California. She specializes in mathematical algorithms and computation methods for tensor decompositions, tensor eigenvalues, graph algorithms, randomized algorithms, machine learning, network science, numerical optimization, and distributed and parallel computing.
She is currently serving as the founding editor-in-chief for the SIAM Journal on Mathematics of Data Science (SIMODS), on the Senior Program Committee for the Conference on Learning Theory (COLT’22), and as the Chair of the Illustrating the Impact of the Mathematical Sciences study for the National Academies. She is also a member of the National Academies’ Board on Mathematical Sciences and Analytics (BMSA), the board of advisors for the Institute for Mathematical and Statistical Innovation (IMSI), the SIAM Ethics Committee, the SIAM Block Lecture Selection Committee, the ACM-IEEE CS George Michael Memorial HPC Fellowships Committee, and the Schmidt Postdoctoral Fellowship Selection Committee.
She is a member of the National Academy of Engineering (NAE), Fellow of the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM), and Fellow of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM). Other recognitions include two best paper prizes from the IEEE International Conference on Data Mining (ICDM), a best paper prize from the SIAM International Conference on Data Mining (SDM), an R&D100 Award from R&D Magazine, and a Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE).

There is a proposal to form a new SIAM Activity Group on Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (SIAG/EDI). If you support this effort, you can provide your e-signature.
Great time at Midwest Optimization & Statistical Learning (MO&S) 2022 workshop at Northwestern University.
Had a great visit to University of Chicago, a highlight of which was getting a signed copy of the 2nd edition of Tensor Methods in Statistics.
Women in Data Science (WiDS22) was an excellent conference, including portraits from famous illustrator Liza Donnelly.
