Jean-Luc Vay is a senior computational physicist in the Accelerator Technology and Applied Physics Division at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, where he heads the Accelerator Modeling Program. He is also the PI of one of DOE Exascale Computing Project's applications: the multi-institutions project WarpX, which develops the next generation of electromagnetic Particle-In-Cell code for the modeling of plasma-based particle accelerators. He also coordinates the Consortion for Advanced Modeling of Particles Accelerators, a collaborative project invoving partners from national laboratories, universities and industry. His interests include the development of novel algorithms, their analysis and implementation into state-of-the-art codes, their optimization and their application to the modeling of particle accelerators, laser-plasma interactions and other plasma physics problems.
