Jeff Hittinger is a Computational Scientist in the Center for Applied Scientific Computing at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. Jeff works primarily on the application of advanced discretization methods and techniques to plasma physics simulation.  He currently leads the VALHALLA Vlasov simulation LDRD project and works on the applied mathematics effort of the Edge Simulation Laboratory funded by the DOE Office of Science.  Jeff also works on the B program code verification project and is currently involved in the Uncertainty Quantification Strategic Initiative LDRD project working on a posteriori error estimation.  His research interests include computational plasma physics, computational fluid dynamics, higher-order finite-difference and finite-volume methods, parallel computing, and calculation verificiation.

Jeff joined the Center for Applied Scientific Computing in October 2000 as a postdoctoral researcher.  Prior to this, Jeff attended the Univeristy of Michigan where he received his Ph.D. in Aerospace Engineering and Scientific Computing (2000), his M.S. in Mathematics (1997), and his M.S.E. in Aerospace Engineering (1994). He received his B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Lehigh University (1993).
