Wolfram Computation Meets Knowledge

Wolfram Innovator Award

Wolfram technologies have long been a major force in many areas of industry and research. Leaders in many top organizations and institutions have played a major role in using computational intelligence and pushing the boundaries of how the Wolfram technology stack is leveraged for innovation across fields and disciplines.

We recognize these deserving recipients with the Wolfram Innovator Award, which is awarded at the Wolfram Technology Conferences around the world.


Ricardo Martínez-Lagunes

Consultant, World Bank and Inter-American Development Bank

Areas: Civil Engineering, Data Analysis, Data Analytics, Data Science, Economic Research and Analysis, Environmental Engineering, Research and Analysis

Ricardo Martínez-Lagunes is a consultant for both the World Bank and the Inter-American Development Bank. His main professional activities currently focus on water resources policy, information systems for water resource management and environmental economic accounts and assessments.

Martínez-Lagunes is using Wolfram technologies to develop the next generation of computational water policy analytical tools to better understand and tackle challenges such as improving water utilities. In addition, he has demonstrated the ability to ingest large and disconnected datasets, compute and visualize that information more efficiently and create computationally dynamic dashboards for decision makers for policy design for investment/funding initiatives.


Samer Adeeb

University of Alberta

Areas: Civil Engineering, Education, Environmental Engineering

As an associate professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Alberta, Samer Adeeb uses Mathematica in teaching continuum mechanics, solid mechanics and finite element method courses, introducing approximately 250 undergraduate and graduate students to the Wolfram Language each year. In addition to advocating for Mathematica’s use on campus, Adeeb provides a free, online civil engineering text utilizing webMathematica. In the future, he plans to transition his site and course materials to Mathematica Online. He is the author of the book Introduction to Solid Mechanics and Finite Element Analysis Using Mathematica, published in 2011.
