UC Berkeley’s Research IT group was invited to participate in the 2017 Binder workshop hosted at UC Davis in October of last year. The workshop’s goal was to “enhance and extend the functionality of the binder notebook computing platform,” and specifically “ to brainstorm and prototype support for credentials so that private resources can be used to source and execute binders (on, e.g., AWS accounts and private repositories).”

How might matter give rise to subjective experience? This question helps drive the Gallant Lab at UC Berkeley to find explanations to the mysteries of neuroscience. The Gallant Lab focuses much of its research on functional cartography of the brain, mapping areas of the brain that are involved in cognitive or motor functions.

Seismologist processes earthquake waveforms recorded by smartphones on multiple platforms

MyShake users across the globe

Growing up in Anyang, in a central region of China greatly impacted by earthquakes, Qingkai Kong was inspired to do research in seismology precisely because earthquakes are serious natural hazards that affect communities worldwide. Berkeley’s proximity to the Hayward Fault influenced his decision to complete his graduate studies under Richard Allen at the UC Berkeley Seismology Lab.
