Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL), located in the San Francisco Bay Area (East Bay), is a premier applied science laboratory that is part of the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) within the Department of Energy (DOE). LLNL's mission is strengthening national security by developing and applying cutting-edge science, technology, and engineering that respond with vision, quality, integrity, and technical excellence to scientific issues of national importance. The Laboratory has a current annual budget of about $2.3 billion, employing approximately 7,500 employees.
The High Energy Density Physics (HEDP) Summer Internship prepares graduate and undergraduate students for experimental, theoretical, and computational research in many disciplines. The three month summer internship gives students the opportunity to interact with staff scientists, give oral presentations, and learn about other interesting research at LLNL. Interns use state-of-the-art research facilities including lasers, pulse power machines, and massively parallel supercomputers.
Perry Chodash is a design physicist at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. He received a B.S. in Engineering Physics from the University of Illinois. He then received an M.S. and Ph.D. in Nuclear Engineering from the University of California, Berkeley. He completed his doctoral research at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, where he set a limit on the nuclear excitation by electronic transition rate in U-235. His current research is in the areas of radiation transport and modeling the thermostructural response of materials due to intense radiation pulses.
Allen Toreja is a computational/design physicist at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. Allen received his B.S., M.S., and PhD. In Nuclear Engineering from the University of Illinois. At LLNL, he has worked on the development of high energy density physics simulation codes. Most recently, Allen has been using these simulation codes to model and design high energy density physics experiments.
