Computing Sciences staff members and other Berkeley Lab researchers were among the 40 professionals who discussed their work at Albany High School's annual Career Day on November 14, 2012. 

Dan Martin of CRD's Applied Numerical Algorithms Group discussed his work on BISICLES, a project to model the shrinking ice sheets of Antarctica and Greenland.

Peter Nugent of CRD's Computational Cosmology Center, described the search for supernovae and how they can be used to learn more about the universe.

Jay Krous of IT Division addressed cyber security at Berkeley Lab.

David Britt of the Molecular Foundry described working in a world of objects a hundred times smaller than the width of a human hair to learn about the properties of materials, including gold nanoparticles.

Rich Brown and Duo Wang of EETD talked about how buildings can be made more energy efficient and why this is important from both an environmental perspective and at the individual level.

Susan Addy of EETD revealed how a small team of people working together can make a huge difference in the lives of people anywhere by addressing problems of health, hunger, clean water and energy for the planet's poor in a sustainable way.

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 6,000 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 DOE 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.
