My research involves Monte Carlo radition transport analysis of a variety of fusion reactors/devices including ITER and JET as well as some conceptual designs. I use the MCNP and DAG-MCNP Monte Carlo transport codes as well as some CAD and meshing tools. I also participate in benchmarking nuclear data for neutron and photon radiation transport.
I also teach the MCNP portion of the NE412 Senior Design class. In this class, students design a variety of nuclear systems such as small modular reactor power plants, molten salt fueled and molten salt cooled power plants, gas cooled reactor power plants, space based reactor power plants, medical isotope production sytems, and radiotherapy treatment suites.
