Alfredo Caro joined Los Alamos National Laboratory in March 2010, coming from Lawrence Livermore National Lab, where he worked for seven years in fusion and fission computational materials science.

While completing his Ph.D. at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Caro's research covered experimental work on radiation damage; later, during his years at Bariloche in Argentina, his work focused on theoretical condensed matter physics.

In 1987, he returned to Switzerland and has been working on computational materials science ever since, a field in which he has published ~120 articles, many of them focused on the thermodynamical aspects of the atomic scale description of multicomponent alloys.
