Brian Friesen, a post-doc working closely with CRD’s Center for Computational Sciences and Engineering, tweaked his travel plans to help an inquisitive high school student to calculate the probability of surviving a zombie apocalypse. He also helped answer student questions about math and supercomputers.

Baden Leads Computer Languages & Software Group
CRD’s Xiaoye 'Sherry' Li Named 2016 SIAM Fellow
Updated Workflows for New LHC Era
Two years ago, Berkeley Lab researchers developed OpenMSI—the most advanced computational tool for analyzing and visualizing mass spectrometry imaging (MSI) data. Now, OpenMSI has been licensed to support ImaBiotech’s Multimaging™ technology in the field of pharmaceutical and cosmetic research and development.
Scott Baden has been named Computer Languages and Systems Software Group Lead in Berkeley Lab’s Computational Research Division (CRD). In addition to managing the group, he will also be doing research on program restructuring to improve performance on supercomputers and also look into novel implementation techniques that may someday be incorporated in an automated program-restructuring tool.
Berkeley Lab’s Xiaoye “Sherry” Li has been named a 2016 fellow of the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM). She being recognized for advances in the development of fast and scalable sparse matrix algorithms and fostering their use in large-scale scientific and engineering applications.
