Dr. Eva Davidson will be visitng campus on Friday, February 22, 2019. While here she would like to meet with NPRE students to discuss internship opportunites at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. Come find out about the current research going on at Oak Ridge National Laboratory and how you can become involved.
Oak Ridge National Laboratory is the largest US Department of Energy science and energy laboratory, conducting basic and applied research to deliver transformative solutions to compelling problems in energy and security.
ORNL’s diverse capabilities span a broad range of scientific and engineering disciplines, enabling the Laboratory to explore fundamental science challenges and to carry out the research needed to accelerate the delivery of solutions to the marketplace.
Visitor Bio: Dr. Eva Davidson is a Reactor Physics Analysis Engineer in the Reactor Physics Group within the Reactor and Nuclear Systems Division (RNSD) at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). She joined ORNL as a postdoctoral research associate in 2013 and became a staff member in 2015.
Eva received a B.Eng in nuclear engineering (Honors with Highest Distinction) from the University of Ontario Institute of Technology, Canada in 2007. She received her M.S. and Ph.D. in nuclear engineering and radiological sciences in 2009 and 2013, respectively, from the University of Michigan with a specialization in fission and radiation transport theory. Her Ph.D. dissertation focused on developing a method to treat neutron scattering around epithermal resonances in heavy nuclides for Monte Carlo codes.
Eva’s research interests cover a wide range of topics including fuel cycle modeling and analysis, reactor physics analysis and reactor design, and Monte Carlo, deterministic and hybrid (Monte Carlo/deterministic) radiation transport methods.
