Short Bio of Dr. Jesus Martinez: I’m a mathematical scientist at Occidental Petroleum Corporation. I am originally from Mexico, finished my bachelor’s degree in Mathematics from UT Pan-American and PhD from Iowa State University in Applied Mathematics. My true interest in Mathematics began on my first year of university as a pre-med student and grew as I involved myself more in the subject. I decided to change to a math track soon after and began studying Soliton theory. This led to an opportunity to study for a year at Kobe University in Japan. From there I moved to Ames Iowa where I eventually started working in Control Theory with Scott Hansen (Dr. Ahmet Ozkan Ozer’s math father). After teaching at a local college for one year I decided to try my luck in industry and faith brought me back to Texas where I joined the analytics team at Oxy. At my current position I face problems from many business units. This allows me to look at very diverse problems, become familiar with many problem formulations, and explore very diverse techniques.
