Andrew Slaughter, Ph.D.

Research Areas:


Andrew began his academic studies focusing on structural engineering while studying at Michigan Technological University (B.S.) and Washington State University (M.S.). He shifted focus for a Ph.D. at Montana State University where he studied Applied Engineering Mechanics and researched snow
and avalanche physics. This worked included extensive field, laboratory, and computational research and paved the way for him being awarded a National Science Foundation Postdoctoral Fellowship at Cornell University in 2011, where he focused on developing a phase-tracking snow microstructure
model. In 2013, Andrew joined Idaho National Laboratory (INL) and the Multiphysics Object Oriented Simulation Environment (MOOSE; team, adding to the wide spectrum of research expertise. Since joining INL, he has worked as a developer and has focused on simulation output, control structure, stochastic analysis, as well as the level set and shallow water physics modules. He also has contributed significantly to the MOOSE-based seismic analysis tool MASTODON and a variety of other projects including enhancing software quality practices and visualization.
