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 has also spent about a decade teaching Computer Science and doing research in Korea, in addition to a decade of research supported by the Naval Surface Warfare Center and the Office of Naval Research in the area of computational hydrodynamics.

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.
