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 largescale simulations of laserplasma physics with applications to laser fusion, radiation sources, and particle acceleration.
Ph.D. Aeronautics & Astronautics, Stanford University, 2016
