Abiodun Idowu Adeniyi

Reactor and Nuclear Systems Division
Oak Ridge National Laboratory
United States Virgin Islands


Abiodun (Abi) Adeniyi is a Postmaster Researcher in the Reactor and Nuclear Systems Division at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. His research interests include model and software development for tracking special nuclear material in nuclear fuel cycle (discrete event, system dynamic, agent based and multi-method), nuclear waste management analysis and operational concepts animation and visualization (AR) using advanced 3D softwares. Abi has expert level skills in using CAD packages to design and develop nuclear waste handling systems, perform structural and thermal analysis and test these systems using applicable codes and standards, and uses additive manufacturing technology to provide 3D printout of waste handling components. Abi's diverse academic background enables him to participate in different reseach activities at ORNL and accross other national labs. Abi earned MS in Nuclear Engineering from Georgia Institute of Technology, MS in Systems Engineering from Kennesaw State University, and MS in Mechanical Engineering from University of Ibadan, Nigeria. Before joining Oak Ridge, Abi was an adjoint instructor teaching engineering and physics classes with the university system of Georgia, Atlanta from 2010 to 2014.
