Dr. Elliott Biondo is an R&D staff member in the HPC Methods for Nuclear Applications Group. His research involves the development, computational implementation, and analysis of radiation transport methods for fission, fusion, and national security applications. Specific research areas include GPU computing, computational geometry, reactor physics, and Monte Carlo variance reduction. He is a developer of the Shift Monte Carlo radiation transport code and the Celeritas Monte Carlo high-energy physics code.
Dr. Biondo received dual degrees in chemical engineering and chemistry from the University of Minnesota in 2011. He received a Ph.D. in nuclear engineering from the University of Wisconsin in 2016. He joined ORNL as a postdoctoral fellow in late 2016 and transitioned to a full staff role in early 2019.
