Daniell Tincher

Daniell received his B.Sc. in physics from Presbyterian College in Clinton, South Carolina and then earned a M.Sc. in nuclear engineering from the University of South Carolina, in Columbia, South Carolina. His master’s thesis focused on the feasibility of a method to reducing the burden of high level waste by recycling minor actinides in light water reactos. After earning his master’s, Daniell then worked for four years as a mechanical engineer at Newport News Shipbuilding where he performed engineering analyses on the USS Nimitz Class Aircraft Carrier reactor plant fluid systems.

Daniell is currently a Ph.D. candidate at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, Virginia. His research explores and develops tools that enable real-time, on-the-fly interaction with licensed production nuclear analysis codes using best practices of human machine interface to provide a platform that enables deeper understanding of the modeled phenomena. He was awarded a U.S. DOE NEUP Fellowship in 2016. Daniell is an active member of the American Nuclear Society, and he served as the President of the VCU Student Section for the past two years. When he is not in the lab at school, Daniell enjoys traveling, local brews, and hiking.
