Manager, Nuclear Systems Analysis Department
Nuclear Engineering Division

Dr. Taek K. Kim is the Department Manager for Nuclear Systems Analysis, in the Nuclear Engineering (NE) Division at Argonne. He is a principal nuclear engineer and has worked at Argonne since 2001. He is responsible for technical leadership and programmatic guidance of a variety of activities on reactor physics, neutronics and fuel methods and simulations, advanced reactor concept development, and nuclear fuel cycle analyses. At Argonne, Dr. Kim has contributed to advanced reactor design and analysis projects mostly focusing on fast reactors, high temperature reactors, supercritical water reactors, and water-based reactors under U.S. Department of Energy, Office of Nuclear Energy (DOE-NE) programs. He has participated in various international projects focusing on the design and analysis of sodium-cooled fast reactors within bilateral collaborations between the U.S. and Japan, China, France, Korea, and International organizations. Dr. Kim is also a major contributor to the systems analysis and integration activities of DOE-NE. During his career, he has developed LWR fuel reload optimization methods, and computation codes for fast reactor analysis.

Taek K. Kim has a Ph.D. in Nuclear Engineering from the Seoul National University, Korea. Prior to employment at Argonne, Dr. Kim worked as a senior researcher at the Korea Atomic Energy Research Institute (KAERI) and as a visiting scientist in the School of Nuclear Engineering, Purdue University.
