Jeffrey A. F. Hittinger
Jeff Hittinger is a Computational Scientist and Group Leader for the Scientific Computing Group 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 Extreme Resilient Discretizations (ExReDi) research project and works on the applied mathematics effort of the Edge Simulation Laboratory funded by the DOE Office of Science. His research interests include computational plasma physics, computational fluid dynamics, higher-order finite-difference and finite-volume methods, parallel computing, and calculation verification.
Jeff joined the Center for Applied Scientific Computing in October 2000 as a postdoctoral researcher. Prior to this, he 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). Jeff received his B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Lehigh University (1993).
