Don Willcox, LBNL

Don Willcox is a postdoctoral researcher in the Center for Computational Sciences and Engineering (CCSE) in the Computational Research Division at Berkeley Lab.  His research is computational astrophysics centers on designing large scale hydrodynamics simulations of supernova explosions. He also develops efficient algorithms for ODE integration to model nuclear burning in various astrophysical processes and accelerates these algorithms for GPU-based supercomputers.  Don completed his Ph.D. in Physics at Stony Brook University in August 2018 working on thermonuclear supernovae modeling and the convective Urca process in white dwarf stars before joining Berkeley Lab.
