Manager, Nuclear Systems Analysis Department
- Nuclear Engineering

Temitope Taiwo is responsible for the supervision of research groups working on reactor physics analysis, advanced modeling and simulation, fuel cycle and systems dynamics modeling, criticality safety and nuclear data.

Taiwo’s experience includes working in the nuclear industry, research laboratory and U.S. government in the areas of nuclear reactor design, methods development and analysis. He has been at Argonne since 1990, and during that time, developed computational tools and methods and performed analysis of nuclear energy systems, including fast and thermal reactors. From 1995 to 1996, he performed assessments of international nuclear security and non-proliferation issues for the U.S. government.

Prior to employment at Argonne, Taiwo worked as a nuclear reactor analyst at Northeast Utilities in Connecticut, where he was part of the code development and reactor analysis team. He developed nuclear analysis computer models and methods in support of Light Water Reactor core reloads, and designed and analyzed reload cycles.
