Lori Diachin, deputy associate director for science and technology at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, has been appointed deputy chief of the Energy Department’s Exascale Computing Project in a move that will take effect Aug. 7.

Diachin will succeed the retiring Stephen Lee, ECP said Tuesday.

“Lori has deep technical expertise, years of experience and a collegial leadership style that qualify her uniquely for the ECP deputy director role,” said Bill Goldstein, director of LLNL and ECP board chairman.

Diachin brings to her role over 15 years of leadership experience in high performance computing.

She previously served as director for LLNL’s center for applied scientific computing and head of HPC4Materials and HPC4Manufacturing programs for DOE’s fossils energy and energy efficiency and renewable energy offices.

Prior to LLNL, she worked at Argonne National Laboratory and Sandia National Laboratories.

ECP was unveiled in 2016 by the National Nuclear Security Administration and DOE’s office of science to advance the development of an exascale computing network in support of the department’s national security, economic and scientific discovery missions.
