As a boy growing up in Egypt, Khaled Ibrahim was fascinated with learning about the things that were the fastest, strongest or biggest, whether it was a car, a horse or even a camel. His dream was to harness that speed. But going too fast was more scary than fun for him, so Ibrahim now pursues a different type of speed: specializing in performance tuning of scientific applications to accelerate their performance on supercomputers.

BrainFormat, a neuroscience data standardization framework developed at Berkeley Lab, is a strong contender to contribute to a community-wide data format and storage standard for the neuroscience research community.
This week, nearly 24,000 Earth and space scientists, educators and students will convene in San Francisco for the 2014 Fall Meeting of the American Geophysical Union. The meeting will be held Dec. 15-19 at the Moscone Convention Center. Among the presenters will be a number of Computational Research Division staff highlighting their research in invited talks, technical presentations, posters and discussions.
Turbulent combustion simulations, which provide input to the design of more fuel-efficient combustion systems such as diesel engines, have gotten their own efficiency boost, thanks to researchers from Berkeley Lab's Computational Research Division.
