Dr. Marius Stan is a Senior Computational Energy Scientist at Argonne National Laboratory who also played Bogdan Wolynetz, the car wash owner and one-time boss of protagonist Walter White on the Emmy Award-winning TV series Breaking Bad. How did a scientist who had never acted before become a recurring character on one of the most critically acclaimed TV shows in American history? What unexpected parallels does he see between the scientific process and the filming process? Dr. Stan will answer these questions and more at this must-see event.
