Getnet Betrie

Assistant Computational Scientist


Getnet Betrie is an assistant computational scientist in the Mathematics and Computer Science Division at Argonne. He has been working on the development of the PETSc DMNetwork for the simulation of multiphysics-scales phenomena over large-scale networked systems, such as water, power, gas, brain, epidemic, and other complex networks.

Get joined the Environmental Sciences division at Argonne as a postdoctoral appointee, where he developed and applied a physics-based tool to understand interdependencies between energy and water systems. Also, he worked on simulations of large-scale hydrological processes and extreme weather event impacts on infrastructure systems.

He received his Ph.D. in civil engineering from the University of British Columbia, Canada. In addition to having been a lecturer and research assistant at the university, he has a broad range of experience in computational technology applications, including modeling and optimization, machine learning, and risk decision and uncertainty analysis for civil and environmental engineering problems.
