Sandia National Labs FY20 LDRD Annual Report


Honors and Distinctions Vince Urias , Sandia computer scientist and LDRD researcher, earned national recognition for cybersecurity platforms he conceived – Cloud Hypervisor Forensics and Incident Response Platform, and High-fidelity Adaptive Deception and Emulation System. Urias was invited to pitch his software to investors, entrepreneurs, and prospective customers at a special 2020 virtual event sponsored by DOE to accelerate the commercialization of federally developed technologies. Seema Singh , one of Sandia’s Office of Science program leads and Joint BioEnergy Institute scientists, received recognition from PLoS Biology for being in the top 2% of biotechnology researchers and top international scientists based on publication citations by the Public Library of Science. Singh, who acted as PI on several Sandia LDRD projects, was also announced as joint editor-in-chief for Biotechnology for Biofuels . Thomas Beechem , a materials science researcher, was named a Center for Integrated Nanotechnologies (CINT) affiliate. CINT is a DOE Office of Basic Energy Sciences nanoscale science research center operated as a national user facility by Los Alamos and Sandia national laboratories.

Rupert Lewis and his team demonstrated the first working superconducting qubit at Sandia through their LDRD project focused on fast-cycle charge noise measurement for better qubits.

Dorina Sava Gallis ’ research article, “Encoding Mulitlayer Complexity in Anti-Counterfeiting Heterometallic MOF-Based Optical Tags” made the cover of Angewandte Chemie , a journal of the German Chemical Society.
