Justin Whitt is the Chief Project Officer for the Joint Institute for Computational Sciences and a Computational Scientist for the National Institute for Computational Sciences at the University of Tennessee.
Prior to joining JICS, Justin spent 11 years in the transportation and logistics industry where he specialized in supply chain optimization and organizational management. Later he returned to academia as a student and researcher at the Simcenter: National Center for Computational Engineering and as a Lecturer for the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga College of Engineering. While at the Simcenter, Justin developed computational models for the F-16 XL aircraft at transonic speeds to determine the suitability of the cranked-arrow wing for use in high speed, civil transport as part of a NATO work group. Later, seeking to reduce the time required to bring new energy technologies to market, Justin also worked with scientists at the National Renewable Energies Lab to produce computational models for several prototype wind turbines.
