Teng Wang, CRD
As the newest postdoctoral fellow in CRD’s Scientific Data Management Research Group, Teng Wang will explore novel file system architectures to accelerate real-world scientific data movement and foster scientific discovery.
Before joining Berkeley Lab, Wang was a graduate student at Florida State University exploring strategies and file system designs to tackle the input/output challenges of scientific applications. As part of this work, he collaborated with researchers at Oak Ridge, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratories, and NASA. He also published papers at several conferences and journals, such as IPDPS'17, SC'16, Cluster'15 and IEEE BigData'14.
Wang notes that he fell in love with computing as an elementary school student, when he was introduced to it in a math course. Originally from China, Wang earned his Bachelors degree in computer science from Zhengzhou University and his Masters degree in software engineering from Huazhong University of Science and Technology. He moved to the US in 2012 to pursue his Ph.D. in computer science.
In his free time, Wang likes to play ping-pong and the violin. He also likes to spend time hiking outdoors.
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.
