Dona Crawford, associate director of Computation, was named the 2005 Outstanding Woman of the Year in the science category by the Alameda County Women’s Hall of Fame. She was honored for her work and leadership in establishing the world’s fastest supercomputer, called BlueGene/L, at Livermore. Crawford joined the Laboratory in 2001. Prior to that, she spent 25 years in computer science at Sandia National Laboratories in Livermore and New Mexico. The Alameda County Women’s Hall of Fame was established in October 1993 to recognize outstanding women in the California county for their achievements and contributions to the county and its citizens.
In May, James Berryman of the Energy and Environment Directorate was awarded the 2005 Maurice A. Biot Medal by the American Society of Civil Engineers at the 3rd Biot Poromechanics Conference in Norman, Oklahoma. He received the award for “his outstanding contributions in poromechanics, granular materials, random composite media, tomography and inverse problems, and seismology.” Since 1981, Berryman has been a physicist at the Laboratory, and he is currently a member of the Computational Physics Group in the Earth Sciences Division. He has been a consulting professor of geophysics at Stanford University since 1992. The Biot Medal is named after Maurice A. Biot, who during a career spanning more than 50 years, made an unusually broad range of contributions in science and technology.
