NuCoMP logo - three interlocking spheresThe underlying research theme of The Nuclear Computing and Multi-Physics (NuCoMP) group is the development of innovative computation techniques to address emerging challenges in areas of nuclear energy, medical physics, nuclear safety/security, and space exploration. In past years, the research group have addressed crosscutting challenges, and proposed new solutions to problems arising from future nuclear reactor designs, radiation therapy for cancer, Monte Carlo/deterministic methods and tools development, radiation effects and rad-hard design of power devices, and encompassing other nuclear related multidisciplinary research issues.



On March 6th, 2023, Peter defended his thesis "Enhancing Monte Carlo Modeling Workflows with a Metamodel-Driven Approach for Nuclear Reactor Analysis". 

Dr. Ji, Peter, and Qiyun attend the 2022 ANS Winter Meeting in Phoenix Arizona! On Tuesday, Qiyun presented his paper "An Equation-Free Based Coupling Approach for Multiscale Fluid Dynamics and Heat Transfer Analysis". Then on Wednesday, Peter presented "Monte Carlo Modeling Unification via a Metamodel-Driven Approach".

Congratulations to Camden Blake and Katelyn Cook who are now the newest Senior Reactor Operators (SROs) at RPI's Reactor Critical Facility! 

Peter Kowal has been awarded a Second Place prize in the Innovations in Nuclear Technology R&D Awards sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy, Office of Nuclear Fuel and Supply Chain. Kowal's award is in the Open Competition in the category of Nuclear Science.


On June 8th, 2022, Kurt successfully defended his thesis "Reduced-Order Modeling of Neutron Transport by Proper Generalized Decomposition".
