CRD’s Zhe Bai Selected as a WHPC 2019 Fellow
October 4, 2019
Zhe Bai, a postdoctoral scholar in Berkeley Lab’s Computational Research Division (CRD), has been selected by the Women in HPC (WHPC) organization as a 2019 Fellow. WHPC received more than 100 applications for just three fellowships this year.
Bai’s research interests lie in the area of sparse sampling and model order reduction, including compressed sensing, machine learning, and large-scale computation and simulation. As part of the Data Analytics and Visualization Group in CRD, she currently works with the Berkeley Lab ACTIV team on computer vision and enabling high-performance computing for neuroimaging science to improve understanding of traumatic brain injury. She received her Ph.D. from the University of Washington in 2018 and joined Berkeley Lab in January 2019. (For more on Bai, check out her New Employee Profile.)
WHPC’s Fellowship Program provides funding for conference and event attendance to women who wish to improve their careers and work to help WHPC achieve its vision and mission. Each Fellow is supported to attend a specific conference including airfare, registration and accommodation; Bai will rattend SC19 and participate in the WHPC Workshop at the conference on Sunday, Nov. 17.
The main goals of the Fellowship program are to improve the representation of women in HPC and their opportunities and careers, as well as to inspire the next generation of women in HPC. The Fellowship role empowers people to talk to a wider audience about the role of inclusion in the workplace, to develop their leadership potential, and to build a network and community to further their career.
