Haruko Wainwright received her MS in nuclear engineering (2006), MA in statistics (2010), and PhD in nuclear engineering (2010) at University of California, Berkeley. Her initial research interest was to investigate the environmental impact of nuclear waste and nuclear weapon productions. Her PhD dissertation focused on Bayesian geostatistical inverse modeling for subsurface characterization at the uranium-contaminated DOE Hanford site. Since then, she has broadened her research interest to various environmental problems, including Arctic ecosystem responses to climate change, groundwater contamination, and deep-subsurface CO2 storage. In addition to working in many interdisciplinary projects, she is a deputy lead of the site application thrust in the Advanced Simulation Capability for Environmental Management project, leading the site application at the Savannah River Site F-Area. She is also on the leadership team of Institute for Resilient Communities, which aims to prepare communities for radiological and other disasters through research, education and outreach activities.

COVID-19-related research: "Using Machine Learning to Estimate COVID-19’s Seasonal Cycle"
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.
