NSE’s Jacopo Buongiorno along with 15 from MIT, elected to National Academy of Engineering in 2024 are honored for significant contributions to engineering research, practice, and education
Recognized in the Fobes 30 Under 30 — Manufacturing & Industry category for 2024, Jepeal and McAlpine cofounded Allium to develop coatings for structural engineering and construction projects that enable buildings and bridges to last centuries instead of decades.
NSE graduate students Assil Halimi, Gyutae Park, Isabel Naranjo De Candido, and Loukas Carayannopoulos were recognized for their project titled “Design Optimization of an Organic-Cooled Light-Water-Moderated Micro-Reactor for Electricity and Hydrogen Generation”.
NSE PhD candidate, Madhumitha Ravichandran, is one of hree MIT students selected as an inaugural MIT-Pillar AI Collective Fellows. The graduate students will aim to commercialize innovations in AI, machine learning, and data science.
Nominated by the Division of Physics, it is the National Science Foundation’s most prestigious awards in support of early-career faculty who have the potential to serve as academic role models in research and education”
Nominated by the Division of Atomic, Molecular & Optical Physics, Professor Cappellaro was cited, “[f]or groundbreaking contributions to quantum control and quantum sensing with spin systems.”
Xu will deliver the Del Favero Thesis Prize Lecture on the topic of his PhD work — optical control over nuclear degrees of freedom.
Established in 1980 by the Thermal Hydraulics Division of the American Nuclear Society (ANS), NURETH Fellows are appointed once every two years — Buongiorno is recognized for scholarly accomplishments and impact in the thermal-hydraulics field and for his exceptional contributions to NURETH conferences.
Established in 1977, the Sigma Xi’s Monie A. Ferst Award honors “science and engineering teachers who have inspired their students to significant research achievements”.
Adrian has been awarded the Director’s Postdoctoral Fellowship in High-Energy-Density Sciences from Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico to further his study of high-energy-density physics.
Each year 15 renowned scientists and engineers are selected by their peers for advanced individual technological contributions to the fields of electrochemistry and solid state science and technology, and for service to ECS.
The Department of Nuclear Science and Engineering and the student chapter of the American Nuclear Society hosted their annual awards event on May 18, 2023.
