Dr. Andrea E. Copping joined Pacific Northwest National Laboratory's Marine Sciences Laboratory in Sequim in 2006, as the Senior Program Manager for marine and coastal waters. Andrea is the research lead for marine and hydrokinetic energy development, and for offshore wind development, for Pacific Northwest National Laboratories, on behalf of the US Department of Energy. Dr. Copping’s projects focus on environmental impacts from the development of wave, tidal, offshore wind, ocean current and riverine energy installations, and the role that these effects could play in technology development and project initiation across the nation. Using risk-based approaches, the marine and hydrokinetic and offshore wind team lead by Dr. Copping integrates laboratory, field and modeling measurements into a coherent body of evidence to support siting and permitting decisions. Dr. Copping works across several scientific disciplines to determine implications of human stressors on marine resources and ecosystems processes, working with stakeholder groups and resource managers to ensure that the available scientific information is accessible and available.
Andrea holds a BSc. in marine biology from McGill University, and a M.S. and PhD. in biological oceanography from the University of Washington. Although trained as a blue water oceanographer, Andrea has spent most of her professional career on interactions between human activities and the marine environment in coastal and estuarine areas. Andrea joined Pacific Northwest National Laboratory in 2006. Previously Andrea was Associate Director of the Washington Sea Grant, University of Washington, responsible for research and outreach on a wide range of marine topics. Dr. Copping is an affiliate faculty member in the School of Marine and Environmental Affairs, University of Washington, and Associate Editor for the Coastal Management Journal.
Dr. Jamie Holladay joined the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory in 2000 and has been working on solving our nation's energy problems ever since. He is a Chief Engineer and team lead for the Catalysis Science & Applications team, and the Sector Manager for the Fuel Cell Technologies Office. Since 1996, Jamie has worked on chemical systems ranging from electrochemical synthesis, fuel cells and batteries to thermochemical processing of methanol, natural gas and emissions reduction. Currently he is researching electrochemical approaches to produce chemicals and fuels, catalyst development and characterization for diesel emissions reduction, methane conversion to hydrogen and solid carbon, high temperature electrolysis, and magnetocaloric gas liquefaction. Jamie serves as a member of the Hydrogen Production Technical Team for USDRIVE, a government-industry partnership to accelerate the development of affordable clean vehicles, and is part of the DOE’s H2@Scale Initiative for the DOE Fuel Cell Technology Office, where he is on the executive steering committee and is leading the High Temperature Hydrogen Production Thrust. He is the Applied Electrolysis Lead on PNNL’s Chemical Transformation Initiative.
Jamie received his B.S. and M.S. in Chemical Engineering from Brigham Young University and his PhD from Washington State University. He has authored or coauthored over 50 journal articles, books, book chapters, conference papers and other publications (H-index 20). His paper, “An Overview of Hydrogen Production Technologies.” (Catalysis Today 2009; 139(4): 244-260) has been cited over 1800 times. He has 11 patents and 6 provisional/non-provisional patent applications.
Jon Magnuson is a biochemist with more than 20 years of research experience studying enzymes and metabolic pathways in bacteria and fungi. Dr. Magnuson is currently part of a team utilizing filamentous fungi in the development of processes for converting renewable biomass to fuels, chemicals and enzymes. This research involves the discovery and manipulation of genes encoding the enzymes of biosynthetic pathways or the regulation of those pathways. Complementary to this work is his major interest in fungal genomics. He is involved in the annotation and analysis of many fungal genomes with particular focus on the enzymes involved in the breakdown of plant biomass into sugars. Another area of his research is developing tools to assess and understand the diversity of fungi and other eukaryotic microbes found in different natural environments. This research has culminated in the development of a microarray based on a highly variable region of the ribosomal RNA gene, which is useful for the study of the diverse fungi, diatoms and green algae found in soils, sediments and natural biofilms.
Vijay Murugesan received his MSc and PhD degrees in Physics from Bharathiar University, India. After completing his PhD in 2003, he was awarded postdoctoral fellowships by Universite du Maine, France; College of William and Mary, Virginia; McMaster University, Canada. In 2008 he joined PNNL as a postdoctoral researcher; he was promoted to senior scientist position in 2011 to work in structure-property correlation in energy storage materials. In 2017, he was promoted as staff scientist with responsibilities as task lead for developing predictive models and design formulations for energy storage materials. His research is focused on predicting the emergent properties of complex materials and interfaces by understanding atomic- to meso- scale mechanisms through multimodal spectroscopic and computational analysis.
Title: Chair, Computation and Data-Driven Discovery
- High-performance and Distributed Computing
- High-throughput and scalable infrastructure for drug discovery
- Machine learning enhanced high-performance computing
Shantenu Jha’s research interests converge at the intersection of high-performance distributed computing and computational and data-driven science. His current interests include system software, algorithms and methods to enhance the performance of HPC computations using machine learning methods. Dr. Jha leads the RADICAL-Cybertools project, a suite of middleware building blocks used to support large-scale science and engineering applications. In addition to applying these advances for drug discovery and design for COVID-19, Jha leads Brookhaven Lab’s efforts on two Exascale computing projects -- CANDLE and ExaWorks.
