ALD Kathy Yelick Featured in CNN’s Spotlight on Innovative Women in STEM

In honor of Women’s History Month, CNN selected 10 contemporary women researchers in fields known as STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) and paired them with historical counterparts. Included in the list were Associate Lab Director Kathy Yelick, paired with pioneering computer scientist Grace Hopper, and Lab nuclear chemist Darleane Hoffman, paired with Marie Curie. Both Yelick and Hoffman also hold joint appointments as professors at UC Berkeley. Yelick’s pairing is fitting in that as director of the NERSC Center, she oversaw the installation of a Cray supercomputer named for Grace Hopper. More >
