Researchers come to the Department of Energy Computational Science Graduate Fellowship from a spectrum of backgrounds. Some may have little or no formal training in computation, but are eager to apply high-performance computing to their area of expertise, be it astrophysics, engineering or energy production. Others are steeped in computer science and mathematics and are seeking new ways to apply their skills. In these short profiles, fourth-year fellows discuss the fellowship, their research and their career goals.
