Livermore computer scientist Greg Bronevetsky receives Presidential Early Career Award

27 Sep 2011 Washington, D.C. - Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) computer scientist Greg Bronevetsky has been named a recipient of a Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers for helping advance the state-of-the-art in high performance computing.

The Presidential Early Career Awards for Scientists and Engineers, or PECASE, is the highest honour bestowed by the United States government on science and engineering professionals in the early stages of their independent research careers. Greg Bronevetsky was one of 94 early career scientists and engineers to be recognized this year.

"To receive such recognition at this stage of my career is a great honour", Greg Bronevetsky stated. "This award is especially gratifying as it not only recognizes scientific achievement, but also the importance of this research to the nation."

Greg Bronevetsky has dedicated his early scientific career to ensuring that the increasing power, size and complexity of the supercomputers critical to national security research and scientific discovery do not come at the expense of reliability. The methodologies he is developing to study the effects of the hardware failures that are inevitable on supercomputers with millions of components are likely to influence the design of next-generation high performance computers (HPC) and the software applications that run on them.

"The research Greg is doing is critical to the development of next-generation supercomputers at a time of fierce global competition in high performance computing", stated Dona Crawford, associate director for Computation. "Greg's research embodies the spirit of innovation that is a hallmark of this laboratory and underscores Lawrence Livermore's global leadership in HPC."

The awards, established by President Clinton in 1996, are co-ordinated by the Office of Science and Technology Policy within the Executive Office of the President. Awardees are selected for their pursuit of innovative research at the frontiers of science and technology and their commitment to community service as demonstrated through scientific leadership, public education, or community outreach.

In 2010, Greg Bronevetsky received a U.S. Department of Energy Early Career Award consisting of research funding of $500,000 a year for five years. After receiving his doctorate in computer science from Cornell University, Ithaca, New York in 2006, Greg Bronevetsky came to Livermore as a Lawrence post-doctoral fellow. He became an employee in 2009.
