The Computer Science and Mathematics Division at Oak Ridge National Laboratory maintains a broad research portfolio in computer science, mathematics, and computational sciences, connected by an emphasis on "computation at scale."  Research in computer science focuses on the design and implementation of extreme scale computing platforms and computation use those platforms, including: emerging architectures, predictive performance, programming environments, resilience, scientific data and networking.  Research in mathematics focuses on fundamental principles underlying the use of extreme scale computing systems, emphasizing predictive methods, multiscale/multiphysics, and discrete structures with crosscutting emphasis on data and data analysis.  Computational science research focuses on the application of extreme scale computing systems to address a wide range of science areas, including: earth systems, chemistry, biology, materials science, energy storage, and engineering applications.


Vertical integration and sustained focus on energy problems are key values of the Computer Science and Mathematics Division.  While individual researchers have highly specialized skills, research projects focus on integration of these capabilities to address specific challenges.  Taken as a whole, research in the division spans the spectrum from the integration of emerging technologies to science and engineering outcomes, enabling a holistic vision for computing.  While individual research projects tend to have short timeframes, the underlying problems are sustained over decades, enabling a demonstration of the value of fundamental research.


Barney Maccabe

Since January 2009, Dr. Arthur B. (Barney) Maccabe has served as the director of the Computer Science and Mathematics Division at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). Prior to his appointment at ORNL, he spent over twenty-five years as a member of the Computer Science Department faculty at the University of New Mexico (UNM). He has graduated eleven PhD's and nine Master's students. While at the University of New Mexico, Dr. Maccabe also... Read More →
