William D. Fullmer, Ph.D.

William is a research engineer at AECOM. His research interests range from fundamental research of multiphase flow instabilities using high-resolution CFD to the application of system codes for nuclear reactor thermal-hydraulics and safety analysis. His current focus is on the application of VVUQ and optimization methods for multiphase CFD.

William earned his B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. from Purdue University, School of Nuclear Engineering in 2008, 2009 and 2014 under the supervision of Prof. Martín López de Bertodano. Before joining AECOM, William post-doc’ed in the Hrenya Research Group at the University of Colorado Boulder, Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering under the supervision of Prof. Christine Hrenya.
