As a computational nuclear engineer, my research focuses on advanced modeling and simulation of nuclear reactors. My background is in computational radiation transport (both deterministic and stochastic methods). I am a developer and user of high-fidelity neutron transport solvers which leverage high performance computing resources, focusing on application to advanced reactor concepts such as liquid metal-cooled fast reactors. I lead activities to enhance modeling and simulation capabilities of multiphysics nuclear reactor phenomena. While I am based out of the Nuclear Science and Engineering Division within the Energy and Global Security directorate, I also engage with ALCF nuclear energy users and ensure computational projects in the energy research domain utilize resources effectively to achieve their science.
