Andrew Canning

Andrew Canning obtained his PhD in Computational Physics on disordered magnetic systems from Edinburgh University. After that he moved to Switzerland as a postdoc to work in Prof. Enz's group at Geneva University and then a staff postion in Prof. Car's group at the EPFL(IRRMA)  paid by Cray Research where he focused on first-principles electronic structure methods based on the Car-Parrinello approach. After working in Prof. Car's group for three years he came to work at LBNL in 1998 and is now… Read More »

Tony Drummond

Staff Computer Scientist in the Scientific Computing Group. I have been the co-Principal Investigator in the DOE Advanced CompuTational Software Collection (ACTS) project and continues to work on the iterative methods. I am the lead designer and developer of the Distributed Coupling Toolkit (DCT) for coupling multi-resolution and multi-physics models. I have been studying and understanding performance parameters that drive the scalability of numerical algorithms and their library… Read More »

Dáithí Stone

| Tags: Climate, SCG

My research interests focus around the detection and attribution of climate change and of its effects on human and natural systems.  Essentially this means trying to figure out whether and by how much human activities are causing various aspects of the climate system to change, and trying to figure out whether and by how much those changes in the climate system are affecting human and natural systems. My recent focus has been on the attribution of changes in the chances of extreme weather… Read More »

Michael Wehner

Michael F. Wehner is senior staff scientist in the Computational Research Division at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. Dr. Wehner’s current research concerns the behavior of extreme weather events in a changing climate, especially heat waves, intense precipitation, drought and tropical cyclones. Before joining the Berkeley Lab in 2002, Wehner was an analyst at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in the Program for Climate Modeling Diagnosis and Intercomparison. He is the… Read More »
