Jonathan Belof

Physicist, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory

Speaker Bio

Jon Belof is a staff scientist, group leader, and ASC/PEM program leader at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, where he leads projects to develop predictive material models for use in multi-physics simulations. Jon was a postdoctoral fellow in high-energy density physics at LLNL from 2010-2011, where he designed and executed experiments to probe phase transformation and plasticity at high strain rate on the National Ignition Facility, the Omega laser, and at the Los Alamos Neutron Science Center. His prior postdoctoral work at the University of South Florida was focused on applications of quantum chemistry to materials-based chemical weapon detection. Jon's doctoral dissertation was on the development of statistical mechanics methods to better rationally design nanomaterials. Prior to his academic work, Jon served as a consultant and advisor to the U.S. defense and intelligence communities.
