Researcher Profile

William Godoy


Dr. William F Godoy joined ORNL in 2016 as a Research Scientist in the Computational Science and Mathematics Division, CSMD.  A native of Peru, his background is in Mechanical Engineering with a strong research and development (R&D) focus on the computational aspects of large-scale scientific modeling and simulation. 

Dr. Godoy obtained his PhD (2009) and MS (2006) degrees from the State University of New York (SUNY) at Buffalo, working under the supervision of Dr. Paul E. DesJardin on 3D radiative transfer models for fire suppression systems. Upon graduation, he joined NASA Langley Research Center for a postdoctoral appointment (2009-2012) to study radiative transfer in the atmosphere using NASA's Pleiades supercomputer and GPU computing. Priori to ORNL, he worked as a Senior Software Engineer at Intel Corporation (2012-2016) on the R&D of large-scale thermal reliability models to support semiconductor design and fabrication of Intel's 22nm, 14nm (Haswell, Skylake, Knights Landing) technologies, and their 10nm and 7nm successors.

At ORNL, Dr. Godoy worked as the architect and core developer of ADIOS 2, the Adaptable Input Output System version 2, part of the Exascale Computing Project (ECP) software stack for managing data at scale on the Department of Energy's High Performance Computing (HPC) systems (Summit, Cori, Theta). He is currently working on improving the data management workflows of the neutrons scattering data produced at ORNL facilities: SNS and HFIR.
