Alejandro Campos is a research scientist in the Physics Division of the Physical & Life Sciences Directorate at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL). He received his Ph.D. from Stanford University and subsequently completed a postdoctoral assignment at LLNL. His research interests fall under the category of computational plasma physics, and he is particularly interested in large-scale simulations of laser-plasma physics with applications to laser fusion, radiation sources, and particle acceleration.

Ph.D. Aeronautics & Astronautics, Stanford University, 2016
