Kurt A Terrani
Kurt Terrani is a Senior Staff Scientist and the Leader of the Nuclear Fuels Materials Group at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). He joined the laboratory as a Weinberg Fellow in the Nuclear Fuel Materials Group in 2010 after completing his Ph.D. in nuclear engineering at University of California, Berkeley. His research focuses on fundamental aspects of nuclear fuel behavior under normal and transient operating conditions and development of advanced nuclear fuels. These areas span across advanced fuel fabrication including application of advanced manufacturing techniques, in-pile testing and post-irradiation characterization of fuel constituents, accident testing of fission reactor components, and integral fuel behavior modeling.
