Dona Crawford

Associate Director for Computation, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory

As Associate Director for Computation at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL), Dona L. Crawford leads the Laboratory's high performance computing efforts. This includes managing a staff who develop and deploy an integrated computing environment for petascale simulations of complex physical phenomena such as understanding global climate warming, clean energy creation, biodefense, and non-proliferation. This environment includes high performance computers, scientific visualization facilities, high-performance storage systems, network connectivity, multi-resolution data analysis, mathematical models, scalable numerical algorithms, computer applications, and necessary services to enable Laboratory mission goals and scientific discovery through simulation. An icon for the computing environment provided is the Advanced Simulation and Computing (ASC) Program's BlueGene/Q Sequoia machine (peak 20 quadrillion floating-point operations per second (PF)). This is among the fastest computers in the world.

Ms. Crawford has served on advisory committees for the National Research Council and the National Science Foundation. She is Co-Chair of the CRDF Global Board, Co-Chair of the Council on Competitiveness High Performance Computing Advisory Committee, and a member of IBM's Deep Computing Institute's External Advisory Board. She is a member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), and participates in community outreach activities to promote math and science. She has a master's degree in operations research from Stanford University and a bachelor's degree in mathematics from the University of Redlands, California.

Dona was named 2005 Woman of the Year in Science in Alameda County and received the Computerworld Honors Award in 2006. In November 2010, Dona was featured as one of insideHPC's "Rock Stars of HPC." Her undergraduate alma mater, presented her with the "Alumni Career Achievement Award" in 2012. Dona was also featured in the HPCwire "2013 People to Watch" list.

She joined the CCST Council in 2014.
