In Silberman’s role as executive director of technology strategy and university alliances in Dell Research, he is responsible for leading collaborative and innovative research projects involving Dell Inc. and universities worldwide. He also manages the invention disclosure/patent process for Dell Software Group.

Silberman’s research interests are aligned with the principal technology themes guiding Dell Research: data insights, internet of things, mobility and next generation UX, next-generation infrastructure and cloud, and security. He has more than 25 patents in process or awarded, 20 refereed journal publications, and has presented at over 50 international conferences and workshops.

“As an adjunct, I hope to bridge between Texas A&M faculty and Dell Research on a variety of technical topics, such as high performance computing, big data and analytics, and spanning multiple industry verticals of interest to Dell, such as healthcare, security, and manufacturing,” said Silberman. “I also intend to collaborate with my Dell colleagues in recruiting Texas A&M students and sponsoring capstone and other projects as appropriate.”

Additionally, she is applying for the National Institutes of Health’s Small Business Innovation Research program Phase 2 funding for application development in collaboration with PAMS, Inc., headed by Norman L. Foster, M.D. professor of neurology and director, center for alzheimer’s care, imaging and research at the University of Utah, and ViSUS LLC. She will also be actively collaborating with faculty within the department in research areas of human-centered systems and digital humanities.

“At Texas A&M, I look forward to participating in women in computing group (AWICS), give seminars in the department, collaborate with CSE faculty and establish a relationship with the department and my current research group at Utah,” Gooch said. “I look forward to applying for funding to further cement my relationship with the department and its faculty, as well as become more involved in the department.”

CSE is enthusiastic about bringing these two esteemed researchers on as adjunct faculty and believes they will make a great impact on the department.
