Held virtually on July 15, our fifth annual Developer Day featured lightning talks, a technical deep dive, “quick takes” on remote-development resources, presentations about career paths, and a career development panel discussion.
In this episode (32:00), LLNL's Jeff Hittinger talks about scientific success, leadership, and the tricks he’s cultivated for communicating science to broader audiences through the Livermore Ambassador Lecture series.
More than 100 LLNL staff and students gathered virtually for the first session of a new career panel series inspired by the annual Women in Data Science conference and sponsored by the Data Science Institute.
Brian Gallagher works on applications of machine learning for a variety of science and national security questions. He’s also a group leader, student mentor, and the new director of LLNL’s Data Science Challenge.
LLNL was honored by the American Indian Science and Engineering Society (AISES) Winds of Change magazine as one of the Top 50 STEM Workplaces in 2021, as an organization setting the standard for indigenous STEM professionals.
Computing relies on engineers like Stephanie Brink to keep the legacy codes running smoothly. “You’re only as fast as your slowest processor or your slowest function,” says Brink, who works in CASC. By analyzing a legacy code’s performance, Brink and her team can reduce the amount of time it takes to run and allow for more critical science to be accomplished.
SIAM announced its 2021 Class of Fellows, including LLNL computational mathematician Rob Falgout. Falgout is best known for his development of multigrid methods and for hypre, one of the world’s most popular parallel multigrid codes.
Coinciding with International Women’s Day on March 8, LLNL’s 4th Women in Data Science (WiDS) regional event brought women together to discuss successes, opportunities and challenges of being female in a mostly male field.
LLNL's Ana Kupresanin, CASC deputy director and member of the Data Science Institute council, was recently featured in a Frontiers of Engineering alumni spotlight. FOE is run by the National Academy of Engineering nonprofit organization.
Nisha Mulakken is advancing COVID-19 R&D and mentoring the next generation. “The opportunities we are exposed to early in our careers can shape the limits we place on ourselves and our approaches to challenges we encounter throughout our careers,” she says.
Rafael Rivera-Soto is passionate about artificial intelligence, deep learning, and machine learning technologies. He works in LLNL’s Global Security Computing Applications Division, also known as GSCAD.
Rachael Lemos is a software developer in Computing’s Applications, Simulations, & Quality Division, or ASQ. She’s a great example of the Lab’s student success, as she was a summer intern before landing a full-time job.
Dianne Calloway has been at the Lab for 35 years, yet she is never bored. Her team in Computing’s Enterprise Application Services (EAS) Division builds and maintains data-tracking applications that support a huge variety of work at the Lab.
