Professor Lorena Barba has been awarded the prestigious CAREER award of the National Science Foundation for her research and educational endeavors in scientific computing and applications in fluid mechanics and computational biology.

Receiving the CAREER award will give my research program considerable momentum, at a time when computational science is rising in the national agenda,” Barba said. “The field is challenged to reach the milestone of ‘exascale computing’ in a few years, that is, computing a thousand times more powerful than today’s. With rapid changes in computer hardware, the algorithms and software used in science need to be re-invented, they need to be parallel like never before.”

The award will fund Prof. Barba’s research in scalable algorithms for extreme computing on heterogeneous systems. Read the Full Story.
