My greatest achievement

Ken Williamson joined the College of Engineering as an undergrad, stayed for his master’s degree, returned as a professor, and eventually became a school head. Now, a decade into his ‘retirement,’ he’s a key industry partner.

Closing in on exascale simulations

Led by Todd Palmer, the Center for Exascale Monte Carlo Neutron Transport, or CEMeNT, is developing neutron transport simulations for the world’s fastest computers.
