Dr. Eva Davidson is a Reactor Physics Analysis Engineer in the Research and Test Reactor Physics group within the Nuclear Energy and Fuel Cycle Division (NEFCD) at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). She joined ORNL as a postdoctoral research associate in 2013 and became a staff member in 2015.
Eva received a B.Eng. in nuclear engineering (Honors with Highest Distinction) from the University of Ontario Institute of Technology, Canada in 2007. She received her M.S. and Ph.D. in nuclear engineering and radiological sciences in 2009 and 2013, respectively, from the University of Michigan with a specialization in fission and radiation transport theory. Her Ph.D. dissertation focused on developing a method to treat neutron scattering around epithermal resonances in heavy nuclides for Monte Carlo codes.
Eva’s research interests cover a wide range of topics including fuel cycle modeling and analysis, reactor physics analysis and reactor design, and Monte Carlo, deterministic and hybrid (Monte Carlo/deterministic) radiation transport methods.
