Susan L Hogle
Acting Section Head - Radioisotope Research and Development
Dr. Hogle is a nuclear engineer and group leader of the target design, analysis, and qualification group in the Radioisotope Science and Technology Division at ORNL. She received her M.S. (2009) and Ph.D. (2012) in Nuclear Engineering from the University of Tennessee-Knoxville and her B.A.Sc. (2004) in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Toronto. Her primary research interests are in development of advanced radioisotope production techniques, in particular for actinides such as Th-229, Bk-249, Cf-252, and Es-254. Dr. Hogle is involved in both modeling and simulation of radionuclide transmutation, as well as experimental analysis using the High Flux Isotope Reactor.
