Helen Cademartori

Helen Cademartori, Biosciences Area Deputy for Operations, is joining the Computing Sciences Area as Deputy for Operations and Operations Deputy for the Computational Research Division (CRD). In her new role, effective mid-May, Cademartori will manage the CS Directorate's Business, Administration, Safety, Property and Information Technology staff.

Jonathan Carter, currently CS Deputy and Deputy Director of CRD, will continue in those roles with the new title of CS Deputy of Science. His responsibilities include coordinating the CS Area LDRD program, the CS Area Quantum Computing Initiative and the Machine Learning for Science LDRD initiative. He is also Deputy Director of Software Technology for the Department of Energy's Exascale Computing Project. Carter, who has a Ph.D. in theoretical chemistry, joined Berkeley Lab in 1996 and was named CS Deputy in 2010.

Cademartori came to the Lab 11 years ago, first working in IT for six years before joining the Life Sciences Division. While in Life Sciences, she earned her executive MBA at Haas School of Business, UC Berkeley, where she was a Dean’s Fellow. 

As the Biosciences Area Operations Deputy, Cademartori has been responsible for managing all aspects of operations and finance. In addition to overseeing of these activities for the Area, she has served as the Deputy for Operations of the Biosciences Operations at Berkeley Center and the MBIB and EGSB Divisions, and was instrumental in handling the operations aspects of the Biosciences reorganization three years ago.

"With her strong background in operations and management, Helen will be a great addition to the CS team," said Kathy Yelick, Associate Laboratory Director for CS. "She has handled multi-million dollar projects and transitions in varied environments, both private and public sector, and possesses in-depth expertise managing complex financial, human resource, workforce planning, facilities and administrative issues."

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.
