I am interested in a job positions related to Heat Transfer and Fluid Dynamics. At my current position at the Knolls Atomic Power Laboratory (Bechtel Marine Propulsion Corporation), I have gained technical experience in developing computational thermal/hydraulic solvers for design use in High Performance Computing environments and would like to focus my career toward Computational Fluid Dynamics. My interests are primarily geared toward heat transfer and fluid flow (thermal/hydraulics), but also extend to interfacing disciplines such as software development, finite element analysis, electronics, and electronics cooling.
