CRD’s Buluç Receives 2015 IEEE TCSC Award for Excellence for Early Career Researchers
August 13, 2015
Aydin Buluç of the Computational Research Division has been named a recipient of the 2015 IEEE TCSC Award for Excellence for Early Career Researchers. Buluç is one of three recipients of this year’s award, which will be presented at the SC15 conference in November.
The IEEE TCSC annual award for young achievers in scalable computing recognizes up to three individuals who have made outstanding, influential and potentially long-lasting contributions in the field of scalable computing within five years of receiving their Ph.D. degree.
Buluç , a member of Performance and Algorithms Research Group, was honored in May 2013 with a Department of Energy’s Early Career Award for his work on energy-efficient parallel graph and data mining algorithms. He works on high-performance graph analysis, libraries, and their applications in genomics and bioinformatics. Read more.
Buluç joined Berkeley Lab as a Luis W. Alvarez Fellow after earning his doctorate in computer science from the University of California at Santa Barbara in 2010.
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.
