About the Author

Professor Gary Was is the Walter J. Weber, Jr. Professor of Sustainable Energy, Environmental and Earth Systems Engineering and holds appointments in Nuclear Engineering and Radiological Sciences, and Materials Science and Engineering at the University of Michigan. He has held positions as Director of the Michigan Memorial Phoenix Energy Institute, Associate Dean of the College of Engineering and Chair of the Nuclear Engineering and Radiological Sciences Department. Professor Was’ research is focused on materials for advanced nuclear energy systems and radiation materials science, including environmental effects on materials, radiation effects, ion beam surface modification of materials and nuclear fuels. His current research includes development of structural materials for the SFR, behavior of fuel in the VHTR, fuel behavior modeling in LWRs, irradiation assisted stress corrosion cracking and irradiation-accelerated corrosion in water reactor environments. He is a Fellow of the Materials Research Society, ASM International, NACE International and the American Nuclear Society. Professor Was has published over 200 technical articles in referred, archival journals, presented over 300 conference papers, delivered 180 invited talks and seminars, and has published a graduate level textbook on Radiation Materials Science. Professor Was received the Presidential YoungInvestigator award from NSF,

the Champion H. Matthewson Award from TMS, the Outstanding and Special Achievement Awards by the Materials Science and Technology Division of the American Nuclear Society, the Henry Marion Howe Medal from ASM, and the Lee Hsun Award from the Chinese Academy of Sciences.
