As Bahram Parvin (left) and Juan Meza (right) look on, Horst Simon con- gratulates Raquel Romano on her selection as the Alaverez Fellow in Computatonal Science.

Raquel Romano, a member of the Imaging and Informatics Group in the Computational Research Division, has been selected as the next Luis W. Alvarez Post-Doctoral Fellow in Computational Science. Here she is congratulated by Horst Simon, associate lab director for Computing Sciences. After earning her bachelor’s degree in mathematics from Harvard, Romano earned both her master’s and Ph.D. in computer science at MIT. At Berkeley Lab, she is working to develop computer vision and image processing tools to help biologists in the Life Sciences Division better understand why some cells become cancerous.

About Computing Sciences at Berkeley Lab

The Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) Computing Sciences organization provides the computing and networking resources and expertise critical to advancing the Department of Energy's research missions: developing new energy sources, improving energy efficiency, developing new materials and increasing our understanding of ourselves, our world and our universe.

ESnet, the Energy Sciences Network, provides the high-bandwidth, reliable connections that link scientists at 40 DOE research sites to each other and to experimental facilities and supercomputing centers around the country. The National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC) powers the discoveries of 7,000-plus scientists at national laboratories and universities, including those at Berkeley Lab's Computational Research Division (CRD). CRD conducts research and development in mathematical modeling and simulation, algorithm design, data storage, management and analysis, computer system architecture and high-performance software implementation. NERSC and ESnet are Department of Energy Office of Science User Facilities.

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory addresses the world's most urgent scientific challenges by advancing sustainable energy, protecting human health, creating new materials, and revealing the origin and fate of the universe. Founded in 1931, Berkeley Lab's scientific expertise has been recognized with 13 Nobel prizes. The University of California manages Berkeley Lab for the DOE’s Office of Science.

DOE’s Office of Science is the single largest supporter of basic research in the physical sciences in the United States, and is working to address some of the most pressing challenges of our time. For more information, please visit science.energy.gov.
