Computational Materials at Berkeley, or CM@B, was founded as an avenue to inform the public and students at the University of California, Berkeley about advancements in the fascinating field of computational materials science. We host a number of different events each semester including networking events, skill-building workshops, and talks by world-renowned experts in the cutting-edge intersection of high performance computing and materials science.
Because of our club’s outreach basis, many companies have recognized Computational Materials at Berkeley as an excellent way to reach out to graduate students and participate in both sponsorship and hosted events.
Talks, workshops, social events, and more!

Sinéad Griffin is the newest staff scientist at the Materials Science Division and the Molecular Foundry at Berkeley Lab. Sinéad has contributed several insights into the connections between high-energy physics and condensed matter theory, winning the Swiss Physical’s Society’s ABB Prize in 2017 for her work on testing cosmic strings in multiferroics. Since 2010 she has been involved in ASESMA, the African School on Electronic Structure: Principles and Applications (asesma.org) which has brought her to South Africa, Kenya, Sudan and Ghana to teach and collaborate with...
