Five researchers in Berkeley Lab’s Computational Research Division have been named Berkeley Institute for Data Science (BIDS) fellows. They are Deb Agarwal, Wes Bethel, Peter Nugent, James Sethian and Daniela Ushizima.
CRD Researchers Named Data Science Fellows
Weathering the Flood of Big Data in Climate Research
Vern Paxson Honored with 2015 IEEE Internet Award
Updating Scientific Codes for Manycore Architectures
CRD researcher Prabhat, working with ESnet's Eli Dart, took on Big Data, accessing 56 TB of climate data from sites around the world, then using supercomputers at NERSC and Argonne National Lab to assess the ability of climate models to predict extra-tropical cyclones.
Vern Paxson, a faculty scientist at Berkeley Lab and a professor at UC Berkeley, is a co-recipient of the 2015 IEEE Internet Award for exceptional contributions to the advancement of Internet technology.
Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory has been named an Intel Parallel Computing Center (IPCC), a collaboration with Intel aimed at adapting existing scientific applications to run on future supercomputers built with manycore processors. The Berkeley Lab IPCC will be led by Bert de Jong and Hans Johansen of the Computational Research Division (CRD) and Nick Wright of the National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC).
Ever since he built a radio telescope in his backyard as a kid in Chicago, Chuck McParland’s interest in science and technology has taken his work to the ends of the Earth and the depths of space. But after four decades and a year at UC Berkeley and then Berkeley Lab, McParland is now looking to retire.
For 38 years, Arie Shoshani has been ahead of the curve in managing scientific data, leading the lab's Scientific Data Management Group and serving as the lead for three SciDAC projects to develop new approaches for managing data. Over the course of his career, he has become an internationally recognized expert on creating, organizing and sharing scientific datasets. In August 2013, Shoshani's contributions to the scientific community were recognized with the Berkeley Lab Prize for Lifetime Scientific Achievement.
