Kate Odziomek, a visiting graduate student working with Maciej Haranczyk and Daniela Ushizima won the Chemical Information section (CINF) Scholarship for Scientific Excellence at the 2014 American Chemical Society National Meeting & Exposition.
SPOT Suite Transforms Beamline Science
Borrill to Head Computational Cosmology at Berkeley Lab
Former Alvarez Fellows Land Professorships
CRD Researchers Named Data Science Fellows
As the 2014 Luis Alvarez Postdoctoral Fellow, Juliane Mueller joins Berkeley Lab’s Center for Computational Sciences and Engineering (CCSE) where she will be developing optimization algorithms for computationally expensive black-box problems.
Most synchrotron light sources have been operating on a manual grab-and-go data management model, but a recent data deluge is quickly making this practice implausible. So scientists from the Advanced Light Source (ALS), CRD and NERSC teamed up to create SPOT Suite, and it is already transforming the way scientists run their experiments at the ALS.
Senior Scientist Julian Borrill has been selected to head Berkeley Lab’s Computational Cosmology Center (C3). Effective August 4, he will lead all technical and administrative aspects of C3—including engaging in scientific program development, and serving as principal investigator for proposals and projects.
Lin Lin and Didem Unat, both former winners of Berkeley Lab's Luis W. Alvarez Postdoctoral Fellowship, recently were awarded university faculty positions. Lin Lin joined UC Berkeley's Math Department as assistant professor. Didem Unat was appointed professor in the Computer Science and Engineering Department at Koç University in Istanbul, Turkey.
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.
