Bronis R. de Supinski, chief technology officer for Livermore Computing (LC), was named one of HPCwire’s "People to Watch," a list of top influencers in the high-performance computing industry for 2021. The magazine recognized de Supinski, a two-time Gorden Bell Prize winner, for his work in devising and executing Livermore’s large-scale high-performance computing strategy including the upcoming exascale-class system, El Capitan, and his selection as general chair for the 2021 International Conference for High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage, and Analysis (SC21).
Three Lawrence Livermore postdoctoral appointees—Oluwatomi (Tomi) Akindele, Matthew Edwards and Wei Jia Ong—were selected to attend the 70th annual Lindau Nobel Laureate meeting, an international forum in which students and postdocs meet with 30 to 40 Nobel laureates to foster an exchange among scientists of different generations, cultures, and disciplines. Akindele researches the use of antineutrinos to detect the operational status of a nuclear reactor at a distance. Edwards studies light and plasma applied to building next-generation lasers and accelerators. Ong applies an interdisciplinary approach to investigate the origins of heavy elements in the cosmos.
