Kerstin Kleese outpost Dam, a heading researcher in information infrastructure services, information management, and investigate applications for initial and observational facilities, has been named Director of a Computational Science Initiative (CSI) during a U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Brookhaven National Laboratory, effective Sep 14, 2015.

Kleese outpost Dam will lead CSI, that leverages computational scholarship imagination and investments opposite mixed programs during Brookhaven Lab—including a flagship comforts that attract thousands of systematic users any year— to tackle a “big data” hurdles during a frontiers of systematic discovery. Key partners in this try embody circuitously universities like Stony Brook, Columbia, Cornell, NYU, and Yale, and companies such as IBM Research.

“I am really vehement to join Brookhaven National Laboratory. Advanced data, computing, and displaying approaches have not usually a intensity to accelerate systematic discovery, though to renovate how we do science,” pronounced Kleese outpost Dam. “Through Brookhaven Lab’s Computational Science Initiative, we will move together multi-disciplinary teams from mechanism science, arithmetic and a domain sciences to try and pull these frontiers of scholarship to clear new discoveries.”

Advances in computational scholarship and government of large-scale systematic information grown during Brookhaven Lab are a pivotal cause in a success of a systematic programs during a Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider, National Synchrotron Light Source II, and Center for Functional Nanomaterials—all DOE Office of Science User Facilities—and in biological, atmospheric, and appetite systems science. These capabilities have also been a essential partial of a Lab’s appearance in general investigate collaborations like a ATLAS experiment during Europe’s Large Hadron Collider.

The CSI will move together underneath one powerful a imagination that fosters cross-disciplinary partnership and creates optimal use of existent technologies, while also heading a growth of new collection and methods that will advantage scholarship both within and over a Laboratory.

“A centerpiece of this beginning will be a new Center for Data-Driven Discovery, led by Robert Harrison, that will expostulate a formation of intellectual, programmatic, and data/computational infrastructure, accelerating and expanding find and focusing a collection and capabilities opposite a whole Laboratory into a singular systematic resource,” pronounced Bob Tribble, Brookhaven’s Deputy Director for Science Technology.  “We’re gay that Kerstin is fasten a Lab’s care group and we’re really many looking brazen to her heading a Laboratory-wide computing effort.”

With some-more than 25 years’ knowledge in a field, Kleese outpost Dam comes to Brookhaven from Pacific Northwest National Lab (PNNL) in Richland, WA, where she many recently served as Associate Division Director of a Computational Science and Mathematics Division, as good as Chief Scientist and Lead of Data Services. Her responsibilities enclosed a far-reaching operation of information government investigate and growth projects in practical mechanism scholarship research. She also led a origination of a information investigate bearing area in PNNL’s Chemical Imaging Initiative. In 2014, she and her co-worker Bill Pike determined a new five-year investigate beginning on streaming investigate (called Analysis in Motion) for a accumulation of focus areas including initial science.

Kleese outpost Dam began her investigate career in 1989 in high opening computing (HPC), building and optimizing meridian and engineering make-believe applications for leadership-class computing comforts in a German automotive attention and German Climate Computing Center. In 1999, she refocused her investigate efforts towards information government for HPC, and subsequently, large-scale initial facilities.

Kleese outpost Dam worked during a Science Technology Facilities Council’s (STFC) Daresbury Laboratory, United Kingdom from 1997 to 2008. At STFC, she contributed to a National High Performance Computing Initiative both as focus consultant and coordinator. She after co-founded a STFC e-Science Centre and built a organization’s systematic information government program. As partial of this effort, she led a growth of a systematic information government infrastructure for STFC’s ISIS proton trickery and Diamond Light Source. In further she led and participated in a far-reaching operation of inhabitant and general projects.

After withdrawal STFC, Kleese outpost Dam worked as an IT business consultant before usurpation a position as Director of Computing for a Biomedical Sciences Faculty during University College London. In Oct 2009, she assimilated PNNL as comparison investigate scientist.

Kleese outpost Dam has co-authored some-more than 100 publications. She is a member of a DOE Advanced Scientific Computing Research Advisory Committee’s station subcommittee on Science, Technology and Information. Kleese outpost Dam frequently co-organizes and is invited to attend in DOE Office of Science workshops and meetings.

Kleese outpost Dam’s primary investigate interests are in a areas of systematic information management, curation, and exploitation regulating metadata and semantic technologies.
