CRD’s Zhe Bai Selected as a WHPC 2019 Fellow

October 4, 2019


Zhe Bai

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 attend 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.

About Berkeley Lab

Founded in 1931 on the belief that the biggest scientific challenges are best addressed by teams, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and its scientists have been recognized with 14 Nobel Prizes. Today, Berkeley Lab researchers develop sustainable energy and environmental solutions, create useful new materials, advance the frontiers of computing, and probe the mysteries of life, matter, and the universe. Scientists from around the world rely on the Lab’s facilities for their own discovery science. Berkeley Lab is a multiprogram national laboratory, managed by the University of California for the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Science.

DOE’s Office of Science is the single largest supporter of basic research in the physical sciences in the United States, and is working to address some of the most pressing challenges of our time. For more information, please visit
