The Alston S. Householder
Fellowship in Scientific Computing


The Alston S. Householder Fellowship in Scientific Computing honors Dr. Alston S. Householder, founding Director of the Mathematics Division (now Computer Science and Mathematics Division) at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory, and recognizes his seminal research contributions to the fields of numerical analysis and scientific computing.

Each Householder Fellowship is a one-year appointment and is potentially renewable for a second year. It provides access to state-of-the-art computational facilities (high-performance workstations and parallel architectures), and collaborative research opportunities in active research programs in advanced scientific computing and computational sciences. The purpose of the Householder Fellowship is to promote innovative research in scientific computing on advanced computer architectures and to facilitate technology transfer from the laboratory research environment to industry and academia through advanced training of new computational scientists.


Funding for the Householder Fellowships comes from the Applied Mathematical Sciences Program, which is supported by the Office of Mathematical, Information, and Computational Sciences of the U.S. Department of Energy.

Current Fellow - Guannan Zhang (2012)

Guannan Zhang is currently the Householder fellow in the Computational Mathematics Group of the Computer Science and Mathematics Division. Dr. Zhang received his Bachelorís degree in Mathematics from the School of Mathematics at Shandong University in the summer of 2007. Under the advisement of Professors Weidong Zhao and Shige Peng, he obtained his first Master's degree in Mathematics in the summer of 2010, also from the School of Mathematics at Shandong University. He enrolled in the doctoral program in Computational Science at Florida State University during the summer of 2009; under the supervision of Max Gunzburger. He obtained his second Master's degree in the fall of 2011 and completed his Ph. D. in the summer of 2012. Dr. Zhang's research focuses on uncertainty quantification(UQ) including numerical methods for stochastic partial differential equations, stochastic calibration and optimization methods for inverse problems and many related applications.

2009 Fellow - Cory Hauck

Dr. Hauck received his Bachelor's degree in Physics and Mathematics from the University of South Carolina in 1997 and, shortly after graduating, took an engineering position at Doty Scientific, Inc. in Columbia, SC. In 1999, he attended graduate school at the University of Maryland, receiving a Master's Degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering in 2004 and a Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics in 2006. Before coming to Oak Ridge, he was a postdoctoral research associate with the Center for Nonlinear Studies at the Computational Physics and Methods group at Los Alamos. Dr. Hauck's research to date has focused on computational aspects of kinetic theory and hyperbolic PDE.

Householder Fellows work in the Computational Math group of CSM.
