About me

Our group is in Department of Computer Science, College of Engineering , as a part of Computing program (including Ph.D.) at the Boise State University.

Dr. Long is also an affliated faculty to the Center for Advanced Energy Studies (CAES), at Idaho National Laboratory (INL).

Sponsored by DOE, INL, CAES and BSU, our research focuses on:

  • Nuclear materials modeling in multi length scales, including phase-field modeling (MOOSE/MARMOT) and engineering scale modeling (MOOSE/BISON).
  • Microstructual evolution of materials in nuclear fuel pellets (UO2, U3Si2), cladding (Zr)
  • Microstructual evolution of materials in additive manufactured parts (stainless steel) in nuclear reactors.
  • Scientific programming, high-performance computing.
  • Data science in fundamental science.
  • Hydrodynamics (HD) and magnetohydrodynamics (MHD).
  • Nuclear astrophysics, plasma, accretion, jets and outflow, galactic black holes.

Graduate assistantships are available

We always welcome self-motivated graduate and undergraduate students who would like to engage in computational science and engineering, especially those who have a background in form one of the following fields: computer science (specifically data science, high-performance computing), mechanical engineering (specifically CFD), material science or physics. Some programming skills in one of languages like FORTRAN, C++, C and python are preferred. However, the self motivation is most valued. We recently focus on two fields: (1) multi-scale modeling of nuclear fuels for students with background in ME/MSE/PHY; (2) data analysis, high-performance computing for students in CS.
