In this video from the 2017 Argonne Training Program on Extreme-Scale Computing, Marius Stan from Argonne presents: Uncertainty of Thermodynamic Data – Humans and Machines.

The ATPESC program provides intensive, two weeks of training on the key skills, approaches, and tools to design, implement, and execute computational science and engineering applications on current high-end computing systems and the leadership-class computing systems of the future.

Marius Stan is a physicist and a chemist interested in non-equilibrium thermodynamics, heterogeneity, and multi-scale computational science for energy applications. He is also Technical Director for the Nuclear Energy Advanced Modeling and Simulation (NEAMS) program.

Famous for his part-time acting role on the Breaking Bad TV show, Stan holds an Intergovernmental Personnel Act (IPA) position with the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Nuclear Energy (DOE-NE). An IPA permits the temporary assignment of skilled career employees to positions within federal agencies. Stan also serves as senior advisor for modeling and simulation to the assistant secretary for DOE-NE.

As director of the NEAMS program, Stan coordinates activities with the Consortium for Advanced Simulation of Light Water Reactors (CASL), a DOE-NE energy innovation hub. In addition, Stan represents DOE-NE in interactions with similar programs in the Office of Science and the National Nuclear Security Administration.

Stan came to Argonne and the University of Chicago in 2010, from Los Alamos National Laboratory. Marius is a Senior Fellow at the University of Chicago’s Computation Institute.

The goal of his research is to discover or design materials, structures, and device architectures for nuclear energy and energy storage.
