Summer School Mentors

Danny Perez

 

T-1 Physics and Chemistry of Materials

 

Danny is a computational physicist with a background in molecular dynamics and multiscale modeling. His current research interests revolve around the development of novel methods that allow for atomistic simulations over very long timescales, their implementation in high performance computer codes, `and their applications to various problems in materials for energy or in nanotechnology.

Rick Zamora

 

T-1 Physics and Chemistry of Materials

 

Rick is a computational scientist with a background in failure mechanics and multi-scale material modeling. While at LANL, he has developed an expertise in parallel accelerated molecular dynamics methods. He enjoys working at the interface between numerical methods and materials applications, and is interested in developing new algorithms to leverage exascale machines.

Irina Demeshko

 

CCS-7 Applied Computer Science

 

Irina is a computational scientist the Co-Design Team. Her current research work is currently focused on integrating task-based run-time systems into several software projects at LANL, but, in general, her research interests lay around new HPC technologies in application to large-scale scientific simulation codes.

Blas Uberuaga

 

MST-8 Materials Science in Radiation and Dynamics Extremes

 

Blas Uberuaga is a physicist/computational materials scientist who focuses on radiation damage effects in materials for nuclear energy applications. His particular areas of interests include complex oxides and nanostructured materials. He is an expert in the application of accelerated molecular dynamics methods to study defect kinetics in complex materials to provide the foundations for understanding materials performance.

 

Blas is a team leader in MST-8 and leads both internal LANL and DOE projects on the properties of complex materials.

Robert Pavel

 

CCS-7 Applied Computer Science

Nicholas C. Metropolis Fellow

 

Robert is a computational scientist with a background in electrical and computer engineering. He has experience in improving the performance of multi-scale physics applications through the use of task based models and NoSQL databases. His interests include evaluating the suitability of modern task based programming models with respect to scientific applications.

 

Robert is an alumnus of the 2013 and 2014 summer school classes!
