Timothy Crook

I was born in Texas and grew up in Mississippi, returning to Texas to study nuclear and mechanical engineering at Texas A&M University. I am currently serving as a Graduate Research Assistant working on my master's degree under Dr. Yassin Hassan. My research efforts have been focused on supporting Risk-Informed resolution to GSI-191 using RELAP5- 3D for thermal hydraulic simulations. My thesis focuses on alternative coolant flow path modelling in RELAP and their importance during debris-induced core blockages, a possible downstream effect postulated under GSI-191. My interests currently include advanced nuclear design and deployment, behavioral economics, biking, brewing coffee/beer/kombucha, bowling, cooking, energy markets, environmental regulation, probablistic risk assessment, thermal hydraulics, yoga, and getting tickets to the Hamilton musical.
