Roger E Stoller

Research Staff

Dr. Stoller joined the Metals and Ceramics (now Materials Science and Technology) Division of the Oak Ridge National Laboratory as a research staff member in April 1984. He currently holds the title of Distinguished Research Staff Member, and is a Co-PI of the recently funded BES Energy Frontier Research Center on Energy Dissipation and Defect Evolution at ORNL. Prior to joining ORNL, he earned B.S. and M.S. degrees in nuclear engineering from the University of California, Santa Barbara and the University of Wisconsin, Madison, respectively. In 1987, he received his Ph.D. in chemical engineering from the UCSB. During his time at UCSB he was awarded a U.S. DOE Magnetic Fusion Energy Fellowship. Between his M.S. and Ph.D., he was employed as a staff engineer in the Advanced Reactor Systems Department at General Electric in Sunnyvale, California. During his tenure at ORNL, he has spent time as a visiting scientist at the Japan Atomic Energy Research Institute (now JAEA) in Tokai (1997), the UK Harwell Laboratory (1994), and the University of California, Santa Barbara (1990-91). Since 2000 he has been an adjunct professor of nuclear engineering at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. He is the author or co-author of more than 150 peer-reviewed publications, book chapters, and technical reports on the effects of radiation on materials, with a focus on the fusion reactor environment. From January 2012 though December 2015, he served as an Editor of the Journal of Nuclear Materials. He has been the organizer or co-organizer of numerous international symposia and workshops. He served as a Panelist for the U.S. DOE Office of Basic Energy Sciences Workshops on Basic Research Needs for Advanced Nuclear Energy Systems in 2006 and the Basic Energy Sciences Workshop on Basic Research Needs for Materials under Extreme Environments in 2007. He was a co-Organizer of the Workshop on Advanced Computational Materials Science: Application to Fusion and Generation IV Fission Reactors, sponsored by U.S. Department of Energy Office of Science and Office of Nuclear Energy, Science, and Technology, 2004. In 1998/1999 he served as Chairman of the U.S. DOE Office of Fusion Energy Sciences Program Planning Committee for Theory and Modeling.He has been recognized as a Fellow of the American Nuclear Society, ASM International and ASTM International. He was a member of the Board of Directors of ASTM International from 2004-2012, having served as Chairman of the Board in 2010. He served as the Chairman of ASTM Committee E10 on Nuclear Technology and Applications from 2002-2007, and is currently Chairman of Subcommittee E10.08 on Radiation Damage Simulation. He served from 1993 to 2003 as a member and Chairman of the ASTM Standing Committee on Publications. He was a member of the Executive Committee of the American Nuclear Society’s Fusion Energy Division from 2001 to 2009, and served as Division Chairman in 2007-2008.
