Computing Sciences staff members and other Berkeley Lab researchers discussed their work and career paths at Albany High School's annual Career Day on Wednesday, Nov. 14. The event featured 40 or so speakers on a wide range of careers.
Berkeley Lab participants this year were:
- Dan Martin of CRD's Applied Numerical Algorithms Group who talked about his work on BISICLES, a project to model the shrinking ice sheets of Antarctica and Greenland..
- Peter Nugent of CRD's Computational Cosmology Center, who talked about the search for supernovae and how they can be used to learn more about the universe.
- Jay Krous of IT Division who talked about cyber security at Berkeley Lab.
- David Britt of the Molecular Foundry who talked about 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 described how a small team of people working together can make a huge difference in the lives of people anywhere, problems of health, hunger, clean water and energy for the planet's poor in a sustainable way.
