Biography

Dr. Yokuda joined the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory in June 2001. In his role as a Research Engineer, Dr. Yokuda was responsible for computational fluid dynamic (CFD) analyses in fluid and thermal systems with the applications of waste tanks, melters and fuel cells. After completing his Ph.D. degree at the University of Idaho in 2000, Dr. Yokuda took on a Post Doctoral Fellow position at the University of Idaho, Idaho Falls. He helped set up CFD code "CFDLIB99.2" and taught engineering classes.
