CCS-2 Computational Physics & Methods
Los Alamos National Laboratory
Jonas is a computational scientist with a background in computational and nuclear astrophysics. His research has been focused on the origin of heavy elements like silver, gold, and uranium. He has developed a sophisticated nuclear reaction network to simulate how such elements and thousands of other isotopes are created in various astrophysical scenarios, such as the merger of two neutron stars or the explosion of a massive star. Jonas also has extensive experience with developing highly optimized code for GPUs. He is working on implementing physics applications on top of the FleCSI framework.
