Thirty women from the United States Department of State’s 2012 TechWomen cultural exchange toured the Department of Energy’s National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC) at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory’s (Berkeley Lab) Oakland Scientific Facility last Thursday, September 27.  Berkeley Lab researchers in the Computational Research, Physics and Physical Biosciences Divisions also hosted three TechWomen—from Algeria, Lebanon and Tunisia—during the month of September.

“One of the goals of this program is to expose these women to organizations like Berkeley Lab, which have a wide range of expertise—in computer hardware and software, computational science, applied mathematics, as well as networking and middleware—and specialize in applying these skills to solve scientific problems, as well as support a national research community,” says Taghrid Samak, a postdoctoral researcher in Berkeley Lab’s Computational Research Division (CRD) and TechWomen mentor.
