dorning

Dr. John Dorning

Adjunct Professor

max

Dr. Max Gorensek

Dr. Max's current focus is on flowsheet development, simulation, and optimization of the Hybrid Sulfur (HyS) process for a DOE Office of Nuclear Energy, Science, & Technology (DOE-NE)-sponsored effort under the Nuclear Hydrogen Initiative (NHI).

Dr. kaoumi

Dr. Djamel Kaoumi

Dr. Kaoumi’s research interests are in developing a mechanistic understanding of microstructure-property relationships, with an emphasis on microstructure evolution under harsh environment (i.e. irradiation, high temperature, and mechanical stress) and how it can impact macroscopic properties and performance.
