Ralph Wiser

Ralph is a second year PhD student at the MIT Nuclear Science and Engineering department. At NSE he studies computational fluid dynamics methods, and he focuses on developing methods for improved heat transfer predictions in advanced reactor coolants such as liquid sodium and molten salt. He has worked on the conceptual development of the Versatile Test Reactor, which will provide a novel testing and data collection environment for advanced reactor materials. Outside of MIT Ralph enjoys hiking, walking the dog, and talking with people about the future of zero-carbon energy.
