    ESMD Recognizes Exceptional Contributions

    Dr. Sharlene Weatherwax, Associate Director of Science for the Biological and Environmental Research (BER) Office within the Department of Energy’s Office of Science, presented the Outstanding Achievement Awards at the virtual ESMD-E3SM PI Meeting in October 2020.

    Outstanding Achievement Awards

    • Andrew Bradley
      • For algorithmic work, performance improvements and bug fixes spanning the atmosphere and ocean components and coupling infrastructure, including a 2x improvement in computational efficiency on all architectures.
    • Patrick Worley
      • For his meticulous attention to detail and diligence in performing root cause analysis of seemingly intractable problems and applying his encyclopedic knowledge of E3SM codebase to develop performant solutions.
    • Aaron Donahue
      • For essential development of the EAMv4 (SCREAM) integration and infrastructure code, including the creation of the model’s input/output capability and management of the process coupling, while also serving as a code integrator and tester.
    • Darin Comeau
      • For playing a critical role in the v1 cryosphere simulation campaign and in the development and testing of new v2 model configurations, and for being one of the most flexible, diverse, and reliable members of the E3SM team.

    Awards were presented in a virtual ESMD-E3SM Meeting conducted through the Zoom teleconferencing system. The awards were presented by the DOE BER representatives: Sharlene Weatherwax, Gary Geernaert and Xujing Davis, and by the E3SM Executive Committee members: Dave Bader, Ruby Leung, Mark Taylor and Renata McCoy.
