Advanced Alternative Energy Solutions
MSCE Professor receives three awards to further research on advanced alternative energy solutions and additive manufacturing
Trelewicz at the Innovation and Discovery Building: the future home of his new lab for exploring radiation effects in materials
Jason Trelewicz, Associate Professor in the Department of Materials Science and Chemical Engineering , has received three awards totalling $1.89 million to support his research on advanced materials for carbon-neutral energy technologies and additive metal manufacturing.
Trelewicz has received $950,000 from the Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Science Basic Energy Sciences Program for the study of fundamental irradiation effects in a unique class of stabilized nano-alloys, which hold promise as high-performance structural materials for next-generation nuclear technologies. He has also received $482,000 as an augmentation to his current ARPA-E award from June, 2019. This project was originally funded at $2.14 million, but expanded through this augmentation to allow the project team,including SBU Co-PIs Lance Snead and David Sprouster, to scale manufacturing of the materials and understand their stability in a reactor environment. In addition, he has been awarded $460,000 for tailoring performance in additively manufactured stainless steels from the Office of Naval Research.
a joint appointment in the
Institute for Advanced Computational Science
(IACS). His research explores the science of interface engineered alloys using in
situ and analytical characterization tools coupled with large-scale atomistic simulations
to design materials for extreme environment applications. He received the
2017 DOE Early Career Award
2016 NSF Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Award
He is an alum of the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences (BE 2004), and MIT
