  • Meet Jeffrey Hyman


    Dr. Jeffrey Hyman is a staff scientist in the Earth and Environmental Sciences Division at Los Alamos National Laboratory.He received his PhD in Applied Mathematics from the University of Arizona in 2014 with a PhD Minor in Hydrology and Water Resources.

    His research focuses on integrating applied mathematics with the geosciences to advance our understanding of coupled subsurface processes in fractured media. He is an Affiliate Faculty in the department of Geology and Geological Engineering at Colorado School of Mines and the director of the Advanced Computational Geosciences Initiative (ACGI) at Los Alamos National Laboratory.

    He is the principal developer of dfnWorks (2017 R&D 100 Winner) a leading modeling suite for three-dimensional discrete fracture network simulations.
