I am most proud of being able to say that I’ve worked on meaningful scientific problems. Be itlearning more about cancer-causing RAS protein mutations or finding ways of detectinghomelessness and suicide over terabytes of electronic health care data, I always believed that,as scientists, we have a civil and ethical duty to use our talents to… Continue reading

Dr. Xinlian Liu

When I applied for the SRP workshop in 2016, I had no idea what to expect. I accidentally readabout the SRP workshop in an email list from the Shodor Institute, and thankfully, met Dr. Leungand Dr. Crivelli.Thanks to Dr. Crivelli’s close guidance and two exceedingly talented students, Tom Corcoranand Rafael Zamora-Rezendiz, our first project, constructing… Continue reading

Dr. Silvia Crivelli

In 2016 my work was focused on the all elusive protein structure prediction problem. I had beenworking on this problem for many years and my group had applied machine learning techniquesto advance the field but we had not tried deep learning (DL). I thought it was time for it and I waslooking for a collaborator… Continue reading

Yuan Zeng, Lehigh University

I went to Berkeley Lab twice during Summer 2018 and Summer 2019 through the SustainableResearch Pathways program. During the first summer, I was working on building an analyticalmodel to evaluate the performance impact of several new architecture designs, whichcontributes to a project that develops accelerators for high-performance computing applications.During the second summer, I was working… Continue reading

SRP is a great opportunity for networking, connecting with experienced people working in ourfocused research area, and learning about great ongoing work in different research areas apartfrom our own research area. During the summer, my research work was focused on generating multimode test points forquantum circuits. I got the chance to connect with my mentors focused… Continue reading

Claire West, University of Washington

This was a great opportunity for me to be taught by different scientists and learn a new field.Much of my outlook on scientific research is influenced by my narrow academic network ofcollaborators. It was important to me to see how others relate to science and to hear thepassion and excitement from the postdocs and staff… Continue reading

I am a final year PhD candidate at the University of Nottingham (UoN), UK; and a staff of Garden City University College in Ghana. I specialise in wave chaos and modelling wave propagations in complex structures. In particular I model the propagation of microwaves in both wired and wireless communication networks through the… Continue reading

I’m at Assistant Professor of Mathematics at San Francisco State University. My research work is at the intersection of the physical sciences and computational mathematics. These include development of fast treecode algorithms for N-body interactions in condensed matter physics, kinetic Monte Carlo methods for crystal growth and particle-in-cell methods for plasma dynamics.

I… Continue reading

Learning and Algorithms on Graph-Structured Data, Aydin Buluc, Berkeley Lab


Graphs provide a rich abstraction for modeling interactions in science and society. Graph algorithms have been instrumental in solving some of the hardest combinatorial problems in science. Recently machine learning on graph structured data is becoming a key component of artificial intelligence, with applications in drug discovery, transportation networks, power-grid analysis, and protein design.… Continue reading

Going Deep with AI and Machine Learning for Science and Engineering, Alina Lazar, Youngstown State University


Currently, there are 2.5 quintillion bytes of electronic data created every day and this pace is not going to decrease in the future. Scientific datasets including scientific observations, experiments, and large-scale simulations in many domains, such as earth and space science, astronomy, genomics, environment, and physics, follow the same trend. The size of these… Continue reading

Open Science Practices, Kyle Niemeyer, Oregon State University


Open-science practices are important to ensure the results of research, and in particular publicly funded research, are accessible to all, to make findings reproducible and thus more convincing, and to magnify the impact of your work. This group will discuss how to practice open science in your research: making your publications open access, archiving… Continue reading

Impacting Science and Engineering Applications with Computational Science, Andrew Salinger, Sandia National Labs


A Computational Scientist comes armed with expertise in algorithms, fluency in software, and intuition for physical processes of scientific/engineering systems. There are tremendous opportunities in using these powers for good, in impacting industrial applications in improving engineering design, in national security applications for assuring safety, and scientific applications for accelerating discovery. The greatest gains… Continue reading
