The American Association for the Advancement of Science, the world’s largest general scientific society, today announced that 489 of its members, among them nine scientists at Berkeley Lab, have been named Fellows. This lifetime honor, which follows a nomination and review process, recognizes scientists, engineers, and innovators for their distinguished achievements in research and other disciplines toward the advancement or applications of science.
Berkeley Lab computer scientists are working with Caltrans to use high performance computing and machine learning to help improve real-time decision making when traffic incidents occur.
Cutting-edge technologies from Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory to detect radiation, make buildings more energy efficient, and accelerate neuroscience research were honored with R&D 100 Awards by R&D World magazine.
Two scientists with Berkeley Lab are among 315 researchers named on July 2 by President Donald Trump to receive the prestigious Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers. Two faculty scientists jointly affiliated with Berkeley Lab and the University of California, Berkeley are also among those selected to receive the honor.
In recognition of National Cybersecurity Awareness Month, cybersecurity expert Sean Peisert of Berkeley Lab discusses new methods that have the potential to keep our energy infrastructure safe from a cyberattack.
Researchers at Berkeley Lab are developing an “optimization algorithm” toolset that pinpoints which variables of a “black box” simulation model will churn out the most realistic data in less time.
By Linda Vu Having access to environmental data is crucial for everything from planning for our water and energy needs and safeguarding against environmental threats to building resilient infrastructure. Now a digital tool developed by a collaboration of scientists led by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) will make it much easier to use high-quality
In this Q&A, Berkeley Lab physicist Spencer Klein, who has been a part of the IceCube collaboration since 2004, discusses Berkeley Lab’s historic contributions to IceCube, and IceCube’s contributions to science.
The team behind Project Jupyter, an effort pioneered by Fernando Pérez, an assistant professor of statistics at UC Berkeley and staff scientist in the Usable Software Systems Group at Berkeley Lab’s Computational Research Division, has been honored with an Association of Computing Machinery Software System Award for developing a tool that has had a lasting influence on computing.
Julian Borrill, who leads the Computational Cosmology Center in Berkeley Lab’s Computational Research Division, has been elected co-spokesperson of CMB-S4, a next-generation ground-based experiment to study the faint relic radiation from the Big Bang.
