John Fulton is a manager at Sandia National Laboratories where he has worked for the last two decades. During his time at Sandia John led the development of the Turbo FRMAC software and gained expertise in Health Physics, Emergency Response, and the methodologies and operation of the Federal Radiological Management and Assessment Center. John also led the development of the Sandia Hazard Assessment Response Capability (SHARC) where he developed expertise in atmospheric transport and dispersion of radioactive source terms and fallout as well as prompt nuclear effects. John recently led the development of the Launch Safety Atmospheric Transport and Consequence group where he applied his expertise in dynamic plume rise, health physics, atmospheric transport and dispersion to assess the potential impacts of a launch failure for the Mars 2020 launch.
Dr. Yao is a theoretical and computational physicist, developing methods, algorithms, and codes to address condensed matter physics and materials science problems. With a degree of B.S. in department of intensive instruction in 2000 and M.S. in physics in 2003 from Nanjing University, China, he obtained his Ph.D. in physics from Iowa State University in 2009. After graduation, he took a postdoc position in Ames Laboratory. He was promoted to assistant scientist in 2011, associate scientist in 2015, and senior theoretical physicist in 2019, with an adjunct faculty position in department of Physics and Astronomy at Iowa State University. He is currently leading projects in the development of quantum computing approaches to solve ground state and dynamical properties of correlated quantum materials within the Gutzwiller quantum-classical embedding framework. He is also a key developer of the Gutzwiller density functional theory and rotationally-invariant Slave-Boson method and software.
Matthew Marinella is a Principal Member of the Technical Staff with Sandia National Labs. He is Principal Investigator for Sandia’s Nonvolatile Memory Program and leads research projects on neuromorphic, radiation hard, and energy efficient computing. Dr. Marinella chairs the Emerging Memory Devices Section for the IRDS Roadmap Beyond CMOS Chapter, serves on various technical program committees, and is a Senior Member of the IEEE. He received a PhD in electrical engineering from Arizona State University under Dieter K. Schroder in 2008.
Emily Donahue is a member of the technical staff at Sandia. She applies state-of-the-art machine learning innovations to novel applications for national security. She performs research in unsupervised learning, anomaly detection, and data-driven code acceleration. Emily earned her Master of Engineering at Cornell University with a focus in computer vision. While away from her computer, she enjoys landscape painting and rock climbing.
Dr. Daniel Clayton is a Distinguished Member of the Technical Staff at Sandia National Laboratories in Albuquerque, New Mexico. He is the Project Manager of the Radioisotope Power Systems Launch Safety group, simulating and predicting behavior of nuclear components during space launch accidents at Sandia. Most recently his team produced the Final Safety Analysis Report in support of the Mars 2020 mission. He also is the principle investigator for analyses of severe accidents in nuclear power plants and nuclear facilities and the environmental transport of radiological releases, as well as the health and economic consequences of such releases. Dr. Clayton received his B.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Chemical Engineering from Brigham Young University. His areas of expertise include atmospheric transport and dispersion, CFD modeling, consequence analysis, launch accident sequencing, model development/coding, and risk assessments.
A strong science, technology, and engineering foundation enables Sandia's mission through a capable research staff working at the forefront of innovation, collaborative research with universities and companies, and discretionary research projects with significant potential impact. Sandia is committed to hiring the nation’s best and brightest, equipping them with world class tools and facilities while providing opportunities to collaborate with technical experts from many different scientific disciplines.
