Dr. Hany Abdel-Khalik is an Assistant Professor at North Carolina State University since 2007. His research focuses on the development of advanced multi-scale/multi-physics modeling and simulation tools and validation and qualification methods for next generation nuclear reactors calculations. One of his key achievements has been on the development of the reduced order modeling methods for high dimensional nonlinear models to enable the execution of many engineering and research oriented applications, e.g. sensitivity analysis, uncertainty analysis, and inverse analysis, that were previously considered intractable due to complexity of nuclear calculations and the computational limitations.
Dr. Abdel-Khalik is an active member of North Carolina State University’s Advanced Center of Excellence, sponsored by INL, which focuses on the development of advanced modeling and simulation algorithms for nuclear calculations.
He is also a member of CASL, the DOE-funded ORNL-led modeling and simulation hub. He is currently a member of the VUQ, Validation and Uncertainty Quantification, team where he investigates with his students and research associates efficient ways to manage uncertainties in reactor design calculations.
