The partnership between Stony Brook University and the U.S. Department of Energy’s Brookhaven National Laboratory affords high-achieving undergraduates an opportunity to do hands-on Big Science, and physics major Casey Vieni ’15 has taken full advantage.
Kerstin Kleese van Dam, a leading researcher in data infrastructure services, data management, and analysis applications for experimental and observational facilities, has been named Director of the Computational Science Initiative at the U.S. Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory, effective September 14, 2015.
Increasing the amount of crops grown for fuel reduces the amount space available for crops grown for food, so scientists at Brookhaven Lab are developing ways to "fatten up" plants to increase oil production. This research could lead to greater amounts of fuel produced from fewer acres of farmland.
Brookhaven Lab welcomes its first participant to the National Science Foundation AGEP-T FRAME program — postdoc Paulo Castillo. Castillo is conducting atmospheric research under the direction of Lab researcher Art Sedlacek in the Environment, Biology, Nuclear Science and Nonproliferation Directorate.
From new insights into the building blocks of matter to advances in understanding batteries, superconductors, and a protein that could help fight cancer, 2014 was a year of stunning successes for the U.S. Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory.
