Kevin J Dugan

Postdoctoral Fellow

Dr. Kevin J Dugan is a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Reactor Physics group at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. His research interests include numerical methods and software development for multiphysics and multiscale simulation. His primary work focuses on coupling legacy and novel codes under the same framework to arrive at high-fidelity solutions for reactor accident analysis.

Before joining Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Dr. Dugan studied at Texas A&M University under Dr. Jean Ragusa on adaptive finite element procedures for coupled physics simulations. He then continued his education in the Paris area of France where he concentrated on nuclear data processing for multiphysics simulations under Dr. Richard Sanchez. He received his Ph.D. in Nuclear Energy from the University of Paris-Saclay in October 2016.
