Argonne Hosts Quantum Computing Workshop
Argonne National Laboratory will hold its first Quantum Computing workshop from Wednesday, July 25, through Friday, July 27, 2018. The workshop’s goals include informing attendees about the quantum computing programs at several participating institutions and highlight promising research opportunities, serving as an incubator for future collaborations, teaching attendees about available tools for simulating quantum computers and how to use them, presenting state-of-the-art research in quantum computing.The three-day event will feature speakers from Argonne, the University of Chicago, Intel, Google, Rigetti, Atos and several other national laboratories and companies.
Prasanna Balaprakesh, NAISE Fellow, Earns DOE Early Career Award
Dr. Balaprakesh strives to develop scalable machine learning methods that can effectively learn in complex scientific domains that have limited training data. His research includes studying methods to integrate physical models with machine learning methods; automating the design and development of machine-learning methods using exascale supercomputers; and demonstrating the efficacy of proposed approaches on applications that span DOE’s Office of Science mission areas. Argonne scientists Karen Mulfort and Zhang Jiang also received the award.
Jung Woo “Ted” Seo accelerates lithium ion battery performance for extreme conditions
Jung Woo “Ted” Seo (BS ’09, PhD ’16), postdoctoral researcher in the Hersam Research Group at Northwestern University, is bridging laboratory research and industry scale work as a part of the Chain Reaction Innovations (CRI) program of the Department of Energy’s Argonne National Laboratory. Seo’s focus is the development of a graphene based conformal coating that provides a chemical layer of protection for electrode particles that also facilitate fast charge transport in a lithium ion battery.
Undergraduate Research Blog
Every summer, NAISE supports undergraduate researchers to spend the summer working in a research group at Argonne. The students maintain a blog describing their work. We look forward to the 2018 cohort’s upcoming contributions to this blog!
