Seth Johnson specializes in high-performance computational radiation transport as a research staff member at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. Although his background is in nuclear engineering, with a B.S. from Texas A&M University and a Ph.D. from the University of Michigan, he finds himself researching software advancements more than performing traditional engineering analyses.
Over his career, Seth has developed new methods and tools in hybrid deterministic–Monte Carlo transport, computational geometry, sensitivity/uncertainty methods, high-fidelity modeling of fusion systems, automated inter-language code binding, and high energy physics. He expects his future areas of interest to be even more diverse and exciting.
