Vijay Mahadevan (MS+PhD). My second PhD student. What great fun we had developing KARMA (Kode for Advanced Reactor Modeling and Analysis), making making high-end third party libraries (libmesh, PETSc, SLEPc, gmsh, tinyxml, …) talk to one another. KARMA was a mini-MOOSE, which we started independently of INL at around the same time. We did a lot of JFNK and Aitken-accelerated Picard and published 2 journal articles.
Vijay became a Givens Fellow at Argonne National Lab (ANL). Receiving a mathematical post-doctoral award is an outstanding achievement for a nuclear engineering. Well done breaking all sorts of barriers! Vijay was then hired by ANL and leads the SIGMA project.
