Research in this area involves advanced methods for neutral and charged particle transport, and the application of simulation tools for the analysis of systems containing radiation or radioactive materials. Ongoing work includes calculating antineutrino sources for non-proliferation detector development, advanced deterministic transport algorithms for radiation detector simulation, deterministic radiation dose calculations for cancer treatment, 3-D simulations of radiation through stochastic mixtures, hybrid Monte Carlo/deterministic transport for reactor physics and thermal radiative transfer, and the design of reactor cores for small, innovative commercial power reactors.
