Here are the latest developments:
Ann Almgren and Esmond Ng of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory’s Computational Research Division (CRD) have been named as Fellows of SIAM, the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics. Almgren is being recognized for contributions to the development of numerical methods for fluid dynamics and applying them to large-scale scientific and engineering problems. Ng is being recognized for contributions to the development, analysis, and application of sparse matrix algorithms for solving large-scale scientific and engineering problems.
Martin Homlish has been appointed to Cray’s Board of Directors. Homlish previously ran marketing for high-tech iconic brands such as Sony Corporation (Sony), SAP AG (SAP) and Hewlett-Packard (HP), and is currently the CEO of AMP, an end-to-end marketing agency within the holding company Omnicom Group.
