It is the rare and special summer internship that not only changes your life, but also allows you to open new doors and new worlds to others over many years. In the summer of 2019, when Tanzima Islam was a professor at Western Washington University, she was part of Sustainable Research Pathways (SRP) and went to Berkeley Lab with two of her undergraduate students. She calls the experience a “defining moment” for her career, and the research they conducted led to software, published papers, and the backbone for her early career research.
This year, Professor Islam, now an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science at Texas State University, was selected to participate in the prestigious Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) Early Career Research Program and to continue her SRP experience through the SRP High-Performance Computing (HPC) program. SRP-HPC is designed to connect students from (and faculty working with) underrepresented groups with DOE National Laboratory scientists to encourage lasting collaborations and jump start careers.
