Anne S Berres

Postdoctoral Researcher

My main research focus is on data science at scale. My work includes data workflows, data fusion, analysis, and visualization on different platforms from web applications to high-performance computers. As a postdoc in the Computational Urban Sciences group, I work primarily with large geographic and urban data. You can learn more about my current work in the projects section.

I currently serve as Treasurer for the Oak Ridge Postdoctoral Association (ORPA). Last Fiscal Year, I was the Research Committee chair for ORPA. In this role, I organized multiple research seminars, created the new Your Science in a Nutshell (a workshop on science communication), and organized the Annual ORPA Research Symposium.

Before my time at ORNL, I was a postdoc in the Data Science at Scale group at Los Alamos National Laboratory where I worked on analyzing the connection between use of computational resources and cognitive value of the outcome by compressing image databases and evaluating the usability. I furthermore worked as a developer for MPAS-Ocean, the ocean component of the Energy Exascale Earth System Model (E3SM) project. During that time I extended multiple analysis members to enable the use of regional masks.

I completed my BSc (2009), MSc (2011), and PhD (2015) at the University of Kaiserslautern in Kaiserslautern, Germany. During my studies, I specialized in visualization, image processing, and computer vision. My minors were mathematics (BSc) and biology (MSc).
