A Department of Energy Computational Science Graduate Fellowship recipient’s study, published this week, shows emissions of the greenhouse gas methane from U.S. oil and gas extraction may be nearly five times higher than previously estimated.
In 1991, in an effort to address the shortage of computational scientists in the United States, the Department of Energy developed an innovative fellowship program. Now more than 20 years later, the Department of Energy’s Computational Science Graduate Fellowship (DOE CSGF) continues its commitment to training the next generation of scientific leaders as it welcomes 10 new students to the program.
The Krell Institute is pleased to announce that Ashlee Ford Versypt has been named the 2013 Frederick A. Howes Scholar in Computational Science. The award honors recent doctoral graduates of the Department of Energy Computational Science Graduate Fellowship (DOE CSGF) program for outstanding technical achievements.
The Krell Institute welcomes Lindsey Eilts, coordinator for the Department of Energy Computational Science Graduate Fellowship program. In her new role, Lindsey will provide daily administrative support and serve as the program's primary point-of-contact for all fellows.
