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 Division Deputy for 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

High performance computing plays a critical role in scientific discovery, and researchers increasingly rely on advances in computer science, mathematics, computational science, data science, and large-scale computing and networking to increase our understanding of ourselves, our planet, and our universe. Berkeley Lab’s Computing Sciences Area researches, develops, and deploys new foundations, tools, and technologies to meet these needs and to advance research across a broad range of scientific disciplines.

Founded in 1931 on the belief that the biggest scientific challenges are best addressed by teams, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and its scientists have been recognized with 13 Nobel Prizes. Today, Berkeley Lab researchers develop sustainable energy and environmental solutions, create useful new materials, advance the frontiers of computing, and probe the mysteries of life, matter, and the universe. Scientists from around the world rely on the Lab’s facilities for their own discovery science. Berkeley Lab is a multiprogram national laboratory, managed by the University of California for the U.S. Department of Energy’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 energy.gov/science.
