Hannah Klion, a postdoctoral researcher in the Berkeley Lab Computing Sciences Area’s Center for Computational Sciences and Engineering (CCSE), has been selected for the prestigious Rising Stars conference, being held April 20-21 at Sandia National Laboratories in Albuquerque, New Mexico. 

Originally launched at MIT in 2012, Rising Stars is an academic and research career workshop for women; this year’s event is focused on computational and data sciences.

“It's an honor to be selected, and I'm excited for the opportunity to share my work and meet other early career women across the computational sciences,” said Klion, who was nominated for Rising Stars by CCSE Group Lead Andy Nonaka. Klion’s current research focus is on high-performance simulations of magnetic reconnection, with an eye toward modeling pulsar magnetospheres. During the Rising Stars event, she will give a presentation on “First-Principles Simulations of Relativistic Magnetic Reconnection.”

This year’s Rising Stars conference was organized by the University of Texas at Austin’s Oden Institute for Computational Engineering and Sciences, Sandia National Laboratories, and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory.

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
