tomaszkozlowski Tomasz Kozlowski (email)

Tomasz received his Ph.D. in Nuclear Engineering from Purdue University in 2005, where he worked on spatial homogenization methods for transport calculations, PARCS code development, RELAP5/PARCS and TRACE/PARCS coupling. From 2005 to 2011 he  worked at the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, Sweden on independent safety analysis of Swedish BWR power uprate. He joined the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in October 2011.


Graduate Students

Picture_GuojunHu Guojun Hu

Guojun is a PhD candidate working on the Riemann solver and adjoint sensitivity analysis for two-phase flow. He received his Master degree from University of Illinois in 2015 for the work about inverse uncertainty quantification methodology. He received his Bachelor degree from University of Science and Technology of China in 2013 for the work about the effect of nonlinear field on the dynamic aperture of electron beam.

me George E McKenzie IV

George is a PhD candidate studying experimental reactor physics, specifically the Rossi-Alpha method, at the University of Illinois. All experiments are performed at the NCERC facility run by Los Alamos National Laboratory. He completed his bachelors in 2013 at the University of Illinois, finished his masters at the University of Illinois in December of 2014, and plans to continue on for his doctorate also at the University of Illinois.

travismui Travis Mui (email)

Travis is a PhD student with a research focus on multi physics core simulations and uncertainty quantification methods. His current research with ARTS focuses on simulating nuclear fuel performance criteria and their effect on modeling load-follow power maneuvers in pressurized water reactors. Travis received his Masters in 2015 as well as his Bachelors in 2013 from the University of Illinois.

danogrady Daniel O’Grady

Dan joined the ARTS research group in January 2017 and was awarded a NEUP Fellowship in September 2017. Before entering graduate school, Dan focused on reactor physics simulations, with special attention paid to multi cycle analysis using nodal based reactor physics simulators. His current research at ARTS focuses on the effect of load-follow power maneuvers on nuclear fuel performance and difficulties in simulating such maneuvers.
