The mission of the Advanced Reactors and Fuel Cyclus Group

Clean Energy Future

Nuclear power is a key part of the world’s clean energy future.

Advances in Safety and Sustainability

We seek to advance the safety and sustainability of nuclear energy production through improved reactor designs, fuel cycle strategies, and waste management techniques.

Insights through Sophisticated Computing

We choose to pursue these goals through crosscutting emphasis in sophisticated computing. Through advanced methods and simulations at many scales, we hope to gain novel insights into nuclear energy challenges.

Transparent, Robust, Extensible Science

We strive to do science that advances the field. Fields advance through extensible, robust, reproducible work and transparent communication. Our work emphasizes software that is open, models that are well validated, and simulations that are repeatable and extensible.
