Hans Gougar to Lead INL's Nuclear Systems Design and Analysis Division


From Nuclear Science and Technology Associate Laboratory Director, John Wagner:

I am pleased to announce that after an extensive evaluation of internal and external candidates, Dr. Hans Gougar, has been selected to lead the Nuclear Systems Design & Analysis (NSDA) division, effective Oct. 1. In this role, Hans will coordinate closely with the director of the newly formed Advanced Scientific Computing division to advance our computational capabilities for nuclear systems design and analysis.

Hans brings more than 20 years of experience in reactor safety analysis, reactor physics, core design and fuel management to his new role. He will continue to serve in his current role as national technical director of the Gas-Cooled Rector Campaign for DOE’s Office of Nuclear Energy. Hans holds doctorate and master’s degrees in nuclear engineering from Pennsylvania State University.

With Hans’ leadership and the current abundance of programmatic opportunities, I am very optimistic about the future of the NSDA division. Please join me in welcoming and supporting Hans in this new role.

Finally, I’d like to express my gratitude to Dr. Monica Regalbuto for adeptly serving as acting director for the past several months.
