Berkeley Lab’s Computing Sciences Area performs exciting research in artificial intelligence and machine learning, exascale computing, quantum computing, mathematical advances to fuel science, and much more. Twelve of our postdoctoral research fellows presented their work in various disciplines at Berkeley Lab’s Computing Sciences Area 2022 Postdoc Symposium on February 8, 9, and 10.
The three days of presentations are part of a more extensive program aimed at developing postdoctoral scholars’ skills and experience. The symposium includes communications training, mentorship, and coaching sessions.

About Computing Sciences at Berkeley Lab
High performance computing plays a critical role in scientific discovery. Researchers increasingly rely on advances in computer science, mathematics, computational science, data science, and largescale 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 16 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.
