The Accelerated Climate Modeling for Energy (ACME) project will accelerate the development and application of fully coupled, state-of-the-science Earth system models for scientific and energy applications. Hans Johansen, a computational fluid dynamicist, will co-lead the Computational Performance Task Team.
Kate Odziomek, a visiting graduate student working with Maciej Haranczyk and Daniela Ushizima won the Chemical Information section (CINF) Scholarship for Scientific Excellence at the 2014 American Chemical Society National Meeting & Exposition.
As the 2014 Luis Alvarez Postdoctoral Fellow, Juliane Mueller joins Berkeley Lab’s Center for Computational Sciences and Engineering (CCSE) where she will be developing optimization algorithms for computationally expensive black-box problems.
Most synchrotron light sources have been operating on a manual grab-and-go data management model, but a recent data deluge is quickly making this practice implausible. So scientists from the Advanced Light Source (ALS), CRD and NERSC teamed up to create SPOT Suite, and it is already transforming the way scientists run their experiments at the ALS.
Senior Scientist Julian Borrill has been selected to head Berkeley Lab’s Computational Cosmology Center (C3). Effective August 4, he will lead all technical and administrative aspects of C3—including engaging in scientific program development, and serving as principal investigator for proposals and projects.
