Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab), a U. S. Department of Energy Office of Science national lab managed by the University of California, delivers science solutions to the world – solutions derived from hundreds of patented and patent pending technologies plus scores of copyrighted software tools and published, peer-reviewed manuscripts.
Berkeley Lab has more than one hundred cutting-edge research projects using AI to find new scientific solutions to national problems. Through this effort, computer scientists, mathematicians, and domain scientists are collaborating to turn burgeoning datasets into scientific insights. Visit Berkeley Lab’s Machine Learning for Science site for more information.
Berkeley Lab’s advanced materials expertise is applied to innovation in batteries and other energy storage technologies, semiconductors, and photovoltaics. Additional energy-related areas of expertise include grid modernization and security, bio-based fuels and chemicals and building energy and demand response. Several National User Facilities are available for collaborative engagement: the Advanced Light Source, Molecular Foundry, National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC), Energy Sciences Network, and the Joint Genome Institute. Other specialized facilities include FLEXLAB for building energy research and the Advanced Biofuels Process Demonstration Unit.
Ernest Orlando Lawrence, the lab's founder, believed team science yielded the greatest discoveries. That belief is reflected today in interdisciplinary teams and collaborative projects connecting Berkeley Lab, industry, and other research organizations. Berkeley Lab's Intellectual Property Office, connects industry partners with lab innovations and unique facilities to enable lab-to-market transition.
Steve is Director of the Applied Energy Division at SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory. The Applied Energy Division conducts research on the electric grid, batteries, photovoltaics, and advanced manufacturing. The Applied Energy Division is part of the Energy Sciences Directorate, which conducts research in chemistry, materials, computer science, and applied energy. SLAC is operated by Stanford University for the U.S. Department of Energy's Office of Science. Previously, Steve developed and managed research programs at Stanford University in artificial intelligence, computer science, energy, and sustainability. Steve helped to create new programs at Stanford such as the Institute for Human-Centered AI, SAIL-Toyota Center for AI Research, Stanford Data Science Initiative, Bay Area PV Consortium, and Energy and Environment Affiliates Program. Prior to joining Stanford, Steve was president and CEO of solar energy company Cyrium Technologies, consultant for the National Renewable Energy Lab and US Department of Energy, venture capitalist at Worldview Technology Partners, vice president at SDL (JDSU), and member of the technical staff at MIT Lincoln Laboratory. Steve received a PhD and MS from Stanford and BS from UC Berkeley, all in electrical engineering. Steve is a Fellow of the SPIE, a former Board member of the MRS, and a former utilities commissioner for the City of Palo Alto.
Dr. Washington currently serves on multiple committees both at SRNL and in the Aiken community. These include the Conduct of R&D safety council, Diversity Board of Directors for SRNS, and the former Board of Directors Chairman and current member for Habitat for Humanity. He is an also an Adjunct Professor at USC Aiken in the chemistry department.
