Sandia National Laboratories
Andrew Brungard is a Senior Solutions Architect for Sandia National Labs where he leads the Integrated Solutions team. His day job consists of finding as many creative ways as possible to support and extend the work of the Production Tools team and their core, NWIS, "the engine that drives IT at the Labs." He then moonlights as "The Mentor Godfather" - starting a formal mentoring group, individually mentoring tens of interns and early career staff, and successfully lobbying the University of New Mexico for curriculum changes to improve the value of Sandia's interns long-term. Andrew holds an MS-ISA, MBA, and BBA-MIS from UNM; 13 degrees and certificates from Central New Mexico Community College; a dozen industry certifications; and is currently pursuing a Graduate Certificate in Data Science from Harvard.
