Welcome to my research page!
My name is Jean C. Ragusa and I am a professor of Nuclear Engineering, specializing in Scientific Computations with applications to Nuclear Science and Engineering.
The computational methods group (Drs. Adams, Morel, and Ragusa) in the department of nuclear engineering at Texas A&M is arguably one of the very best in the Nation and beyond and I am truly blessed to have such wonderful colleagues and friends sharing my passion for numerical methods in:
- Radiation Transport,
- Reactor Physics,
- Multiphysics Simulations, and
- Predictive Science:
- Model Order Reduction,
- Uncertainty Quantification,
- Machine Learning.
We educate students in many aspects of modern computational methods dealing with various applications to our field (and also beyond our discipline too). Our graduate students are highly sought after by National Laboratories and industry.
I invite you to browse the various tabs to learn more about:
- specific research areas with a focus on research carried out by current and former students of mine,
- our PhD-level courses and a typical graduate curriculum in our group,
- and how to get involved with us.
We love to mentor undergraduate students as well. Do not hesitate to contact me for
- undergraduate research opportunities,
- how to get more involved in scientific computing,
- hints for summer internships at national labs.
