Kayla Clements is a first year graduate student and research assistant at Oregon State University under Dr. Todd Palmer. Prior to starting at Oregon State, Kayla worked as a reactor physics intern at Idaho National Laboratory developing MCNP models for the Transient Reactor Test Facility, and as a national nuclear data center intern at Brookhaven National Laboratory automating data generation using EMPIRE.


She is working under Dr. Todd Palmer to continue research conducted by Dr. Ryan McClarren using dynamic mode decomposition to calculate time-eigenvalues of the neutron transport equation.
