Katie is a Nuclear Engineering graduate student at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. She works in the CNERG Group under Professor Paul Wilson.
Katie's interests include: the nuclear fuel cycle, advanced reactors, nuclear nonproliferation, and computational science and engineering. She is also interested in design and implementation of new reactors, including Small Modular Reactors.
The Computational Nuclear Engineering Research Group is a community of nuclear engineers, scientists, programmers and students who focus on the development of reliable software tools for the analysis of complex nuclear systems. Two primary areas of activity are:
- Radiation transport and effects in complex CAD-based geometries, and
- Agent-based modeling of advanced nuclear fuel cycles
