Roberto Ponciroli

Principal Nuclear Engineer


My research area is the modeling and dynamic simulation of both currently operated and advanced nuclear power plants. During my PhD and my post-doc, I mainly worked on the simulation of Gen IV Liquid Metal-cooled Fast Reactors normal operation and safety transient scenarios, and the design of advanced control schemes for Supercritical CO2 power plants. At the moment, my interests are focused on the integration of energy storage technologies with nuclear power plants in order to improve the flexible operation capabilities and profitability.
