Specialized in theory and experimental conduct of radiation materials science studies in support of fusion and fission power systems. Areas of research include fundamental studies of radiation effects in ceramics and ceramic fuels, graphite, composite materials, and metallic alloy systems. Early career interest focused on the development of materials possessing inherently low induced radioactivity for nuclear power applications, in particular silicon carbide and other ceramic composite systems. More recently, career emphasis has been on the development of accident tolerant fuel forms and their application to current and next generation fission power plants.
