Background

Wesley Brewer is a Senior Research Scientist in the Analytics & AI Methods at Scale (AAIMS) group at the National Center for Computational Sciences (NCCS). Prior to joining ORNL, he was a Computational Scientist for the Department of Defense High Performance Computing Modernization Program (HPCMP). He also spent about a decade teaching and doing research in Korea. He holds a PhD in Computational Engineering, an MS in Ocean Engineering, and BS in Engineering Science & Mechanics.

Wesley’s background is primarily in computational fluid dynamics, he has considerable experience over the past decade in the area of machine learning for scientific workflows at scale on high performance computers, primarily for applications in computational fluid dynamics. He also has professional experience in numerical weather simulation, computational genetics, natural language processing, cloud computing, and scientific workflows. Most recently, he is interested in AI for Science (AI4S) applications at scale to enable scientific discovery.
