Ana Kupresanin to Lead Berkeley Lab's Scientific Data Division
Her appointment will be effective October 9, 2023. The announcement follows an extensive international search.
Epidemiological Modeling in the Exascale Era
Berkeley Lab researchers will lead a three-year, $12 million effort to create a generalized exascale tool for epidemiological modeling
Data Processing Pipeline Transforms Planck Mission Discovery
Berkeley Lab’s Reijo Keskitalo Awarded NASA Exceptional Public Achievement Medal
A leading expert in quantum computing, Bert de Jong discusses why quantum computing matters, where it is today, and the potential of this emerging technology to change science.
Improving Training for Scientific Machine Learning
Neural networks can be difficult to train and employ on large-scale science problems. That's why Berkeley Lab researchers are devising new training methods tailored to scientific machine learning.
WarpX Goes Exascale
The ECP-funded WarpX Project has spent the last six years creating a novel, highly parallel, and highly optimized single-source simulation code for modeling plasma-based particle colliders on cutting-edge exascale supercomputers.
Ana Kupresanin has been selected to serve as the next division director for Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory’s Scientific Data Division in the Computing Sciences Area. Her appointment will be effective October 9, 2023.
With funding from DOE’ss BRaVE initiative, the Berkeley Lab-led EMERGE project will expand the capabilities of ExaEpi, an exascale-ready epidemiological agent-based model to target six diseases.
Reijo Keskitalo, a member of SciData’s Computational Cosmology Center, was awarded NASA’s Exceptional Public Achievement Medal for “developing novel tools and approaches for maximizing NASA’s understanding of the universe from the Planck mission data.”
The DOE SULI program is designed to encourage undergraduate students from two- and four-year colleges, post-baccalaureates, and graduate students to pursue STEM careers by providing research internships at DOE national laboratories.
On Friday, July 7, former Scientific Data Division Director Deb Agarwal’s family, friends, and colleagues gathered at UC Berkeley’s Faculty Club to celebrate her 29-year career and contributions to Berkeley Lab Computing Sciences area—an event jokingly dubbed “Debfest.”
