Argonne Experts: T. Sofu

Dr. Tanju Sofu is the manager of the Engineering Analysis Department in Argonne's Nuclear Engineering Division. His responsibilities include technical leadership and programmatic guidance for a broad range of activities such as the engineering simulations, safety analyses, and risk assessments of nuclear reactor systems and fuel cycle facilities, development of advanced modeling and simulation methods and codes, advancement of diagnostics and control strategies for nuclear reactor plant performance analysis, development of innovative nuclear reactor concepts, and process modeling for emerging (non-nuclear) energy technologies.

Dr. Sofu also coordinates the multi-laboratory activities for the Fast Reactor Methods and Safety R&D technical area under the U.S. Department of Energy's Advanced Reactor Technologies (ART) program. He serves as the co-chair of Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development / Nuclear Energy Agency's Generation-IV International Forum (GIF) Risk & Safety Working Group and the Safety Design Criteria Task Force.

Dr. Sofu joined Argonne in 1992 as a post-doctoral appointee after receiving his Ph.D. degree in Nuclear Engineering from University of Tennessee in Knoxville. During his tenure at Argonne, Dr. Sofu has contributed to a number of nuclear and non-nuclear projects mostly focusing on development of simulation models for engineering system analyses involving multi-dimensional, multi-scale, multi-physics phenomena. His technical contributions include a wide range of large-scale computational physics and fluid dynamics simulations on high-performance computing platforms for design optimizations, model validations, and safety analyses.
