Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Metals and Ceramics Division, Postdoctoral Researcher, Oak Ridge, TN, 1993 ~ 1996

  • Developed a linear scaling quantum mechanical simulation code to study electronic and magnetic structures of metals and alloys.  this code became the first scientific application package that exceeds the teraflop performance and won the first place of 1998 Gordon Bell Prize for high performance computing and the Year 2000 Smithsonian Computerworld Program Award.
  • Applied massively parallel supercomputing technology to alloy modeling and design.
