Brian Wirth

The Governor’s Chair of Computational Nuclear Engineering is Brian Wirth, an authority in the ways materials behave in extreme environments.

His research investigates the performance of nuclear fuels and structural materials in nuclear environments.

Wirth expects this research to lead to improved prediction of the longevity of nuclear reactor components and ultimately the development of high-performance, radiation-resistant materials for advanced nuclear fission and fusion energy applications.
