About Alice Koniges
Computational scientist Alice Koniges uses high-performance computing to solve engineering and scientific problems – most notably, highly complex physical phenomena. Throughout her career, she has led multiple academic and government labs as a principal investigator, including the Lawrence Livermore Lab, and has published numerous papers on supercomputing and lasers. Koniges was also the first woman to obtain a doctoral degree in applied and computational mathematics from Princeton University. Koniges competed in ISEF in 1974 and STS in 1975.
