This afternoon seminar, led by KAUST’s Prof. J. Carlos Santamarina, will include major lectures and interactive sessions on creativity and innovation. A catalysis of pushing limits, ingenuity is the quality of being clever, original, and inventive, often in the process of applying ideas to solve problems or meet challenges.

Panel Discussion with Speakers and Closing by Prof. J. Carlos Santamarina
Dr. Adam Green joined the faculty at Georgetown in the fall of 2010. Adam's motivating interest is in human creative intelligence and especially in understanding how neural processes constitute our best ideas. Adam’s work focuses on reasoning that reveals meaningful connections between seemingly distant concepts, often in the form of analogies. Adam received a Ph.D. in Cognitive Neuroscience from Dartmouth in 2007 and completed post-doctoral training at Yale in 2010.
Professor Santamarina explores the scientific foundations of geomaterial behavior and subsurface processes using particle-level and pore-scale experiments, combined with numerical methods and high-resolution process monitoring systems. This conceptual and experimental framework is advancing the study of phenomena and the development of solutions in energy geotechnology with contributions to: resource recovery (petroleum, methane hydrates), energy geo-storage, efficiency and conservation.
Dr. Juan D. Rogers is Associate Professor of Public Policy and Director of the Research Value Mapping Program at the School of Public Policy, Georgia Institute of Technology. He teaches courses on the logic of policy inquiry, qualitative and quantitative methods, information management and policy, science and technology policy, and bureaucracy and policy implementation. His current research interests include modeling the R&D process, assessment of R&D impacts, especially in the formation of scientific and technical human capital, technology transfer, R&D policy and evaluation, the interaction of social and technical factors in the development of information technology, contextual factors of scientific and technical creativity, and information technology policy.
He has been consultant on science, technology and innovation policy to the Ministry of Science of Technology of Argentina (MINCyT), the Corporation for Industrial Development of Chile (CORFO), the National Institute of Agricultural Technology of Argentina (INTA), the School of Engineering of the Universidad de los Andes of Colombia, the King Abdul Assiz City of Science and Technology of Saudi Arabia (KACST), the National Center for the Dissemination of Disability Research in the USA (NCDDR), and the World Bank.
