Biography: Stephanie Pitts is a computational scientist with the Computational Mechanics and Materials Department at INL. She has degrees in mechanical engineering from Washington State University (B.S. 2009, Ph.D. 2019), with a Nuclear Energy University Programs Fellowship awarded in 2010. Her research interests include modeling the mesoscale evolution of metallic microstructures in response to irradiation exposure and mechanical loading, and the connection of these models to engineering scale simulations. Since joining INL in 2015, originally as an intern, she has been a member of the Bison code development team.
