Peter Nugent, Computational Cosmology Center Director, talked to Albany High School Students about his career and current research in supernovae

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.
