Gregory G Davidson

Research and Development Staff

Dr. Gregory Davidson is a staff member in the Radiation Transport (RT) Group within the Reactor and Nuclear Systems Division (RNSD) at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL).  He joined ORNL as a staff member in 2009.

Greg received an Honors Baccalaureate of Science (HBS) degree in Nuclear Engineering from Oregon State University in 2002, a Master's degree in Nuclear Engineering from Oregon State University in 2004, and a Ph.D. in Nuclear Engineering and Computational Science from the University of Michigan in 2009.  His research was funded in part by the Department of Energy Computational Science Graduate Fellowship, awarded to students pursuing research in solving complex science and engineering problems using high-performance computing.

Greg's research interests span a wide range of computational science problems, but focus especially on problems involving nuclear reactor physics, radiation transport, nuclear criticality safety, and radiation detection.
