Driven by rapid technological advances within the past two decades, computing
and high-speed networking have emerged as powerful tools for science and are
even changing the ways in which modern science is conducted. DOE is a national
leader in the scientific computing field–supporting fundamental research in
advanced scientific computing, applied mathematics, computer science, and
networking. The DOE computational infrastructure provides world-class,
high-performance computational and networking tools that enable scientific,
energy, environmental, and national security research.
Yijin Liu is the winner of Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Lightsource's (SSRL) 2016 William E. and Diane M. Spicer Young Investigator Award. The award is given each year to early-career X-ray scientists who perform research at SSRL, a DOE Office of Science user facility at SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory.
The Department of Energy's Office of Science is the single largest supporter of basic research in the physical sciences in the United States and is working to address some of the most pressing challenges of our time.
