Bio

Nnaemeka Nnamani is a Nuclear Physicist. He is currently a Visiting Assistant Professor at the National Technical Institute for the Deaf, Rochester Institute of Technology where he tutors undergraduate classes in mathematics. Before joining the faculty of RIT he was a postdoctoral researcher at the University of California Berkeley. He also served as a neutronics consultant to Commonwealth Fusion System, Cambridge Massachusetts on the SPARC tokamak fusion reactor where he investigated the effect of Doppler broadening of neutron cross sections on the energy deposited on the high temperature superconductor (HTS). He employs computational and experimental techniques in the area of nuclear data validation via integral experiments. His current research interest is in the area of the application of Machine Learning in getting insight into nuclear reactions and relationships among the nucleus of various atoms.

Currently Teaching

NACT-230
3 Credits
This course introduces students to the fundamental concepts and terminology of computer programming. Emphasis will be placed on developing problem-solving skills in designing and writing simple computer programs. The course covers such topics as developing flowcharts, algorithms and pseudocode, and introduces students to variables, operators, conditional statements, looping statements, data structures, error-handling and debugging, and user interface design. The course assumes no programming background.
NSCI-201
3 Credits
Principles of Physics is designed to provide a broad background in general physics. Students are provided with hands-on laboratory experience in a supervised setting. Topics, which are presented in a lecture/lab format, include motion, Newton's Laws of Motion, forces, and analysis of vectors.
