NE Seminar: NE Graduate Student Town Hall

Date(s) - 10/26/2023
1:55 pm - 2:55 pm

Rhines Hall 125



This will not be a normal seminar but an opportunity for a dialog between graduate students and the NE graduate coordinator, representing the department, with the objective of making sure that students have needed resources, that educational needs are being met, and that we continue to strengthen the climate and inclusive excellence of the department.


Justin Watson, Ph.D.

Associate Professor, NE Graduate Coordinator
University of Florida

Dr. Justin Watson joined the Nuclear Engineering Program at UF in September 2018. Prior to joining UF, he was Head of the Computational Methods Development Department at the Applied Research Laboratory at the Pennsylvania State University.  During his time at ARL, he oversaw a group of engineers that developed state-of-the-art computational fluid dynamics codes and models to solve some of the Navy’s most challenging problems. His research at ARL involved developing new numerical methods for solving space and time-dependent coupled reactor physics/thermal-hydraulic problems for nuclear reactor safety analysis. Currently, his research focuses on continuing to develop state-of-the-art analysis software and methods.
