National Academies Taps Cholia for Scientific Workflows Committee
May 20, 2019
Shreyas Cholia has been invited by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine to serve as a member for the Realizing Opportunities for Advanced and Automated Workflows in Scientific Research committee. The expert committee will conduct a study examining current efforts to develop advanced and automated workflows for scientific research to identify promising research approaches to accelerate progress in the utilization of workflow systems and tools.
The committee will gather information exploring the role of open science, data, analytical code and other enabling factors to identify research needs and priorities in the use of advanced and automated workflows. Cholia is Group Leader for Usable Software Systems Group (Data Science and Technology department) in the Computational Research Division, and will specifically provide expertise on the role of Jupyter and related tools in scientific workflows.
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 16 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 energy.gov/science.
