Nathaniel Morgan

Adjunct Professor for the School of Engineering


    • Ph.D., Mechanical Engineering, Georgia Institute of Technology
  • M.S., Mechanical Engineering, Georgia Institute of Technology
  • B.S., Mechanical Engineering, University of Arizona



Dr. Morgan is a research engineer in the field of computational physics and engineering. He leads software and numerical algorithm research and development (R&D) teams at Los Alamos National Laboratory. The software team is focused on developing a next-generation multi-material multi-phase hydrodynamics code suitable for massively parallel supercomputers, hybrid architectures including GPUs and MICs, and an exascale machine. The numerical algorithm research team seeks to develop high-order Lagrangian and Arbitrary Lagrangian-Eulerian (ALE) methods for unstructured grids that are suitable for predicative simulations of multidimensional flows with strong shocks, contact discontinuities, multiple materials, complex strength models, reactive materials, and diverse equations of state.

Dr. Morgan graduated with his doctorate from Georgia Institute of Technology in 2005 and has been working at the Los Alamos National Laboratory ever since as a technical staff member, Scientist 3, and currently is Scientist 4. Additionally, he is the research lead for discontinuous Galerkin methods and a technical lead for developing a hydrodynamics code. In addition, he has published numerous research publications and conference papers with a selection of these highlighted below.
