Luke R Sadergaski

R&D Staff, Radiochemistry and spectroscopic methods

Luke Sadergaski joined ORNL in 2019 to develop spectroscopic methods supporting radiochemical separations. His research is focused on developing remote spectroscopy capabilities for online monitoring to support the production of radioisotopes in harsh environments (e.g., hot cells). His expertise and interests include optical spectroscopy, spectroelectrochemistry, separations, design of experiments, chemometrics, and machine learning.

He holds a doctoral degree from the Civil and Environmental Engineering and Earth Sciences Department at the University of Notre Dame and a Bachelor of Science degree in chemistry from the University of Wisconsin La Crosse.
