“UT nuclear engineering professor Brian Wirth is considered one of the leading authorities in nuclear materials and modeling how those materials behave in extreme environments.
The latest acknowledgement of his expertise came from the University of Michigan, whose Nuclear Engineering and Radiological Sciences Department invited him to be its keynote speaker for the fifth annual Richard K. Osborn Lecture in Ann Arbor on Friday.” –Tenessee Today -see more-
“The US Department of Energy has named Brian Wirth, a joint UT College of Engineering and Oak Ridge National Laboratory appointee, an Ernest Orlando Lawrence Award winner for 2014.
Given by the DOE in recognition of research supporting science, energy, or national security, it is considered the highest achievement that a midcareer researcher can receive. Established in 1959, the award honors Ernest Orlando Lawrence, a 1939 Nobel laureate and inventor of the cyclotron—an accelerator of subatomic particles.” – Tennessee Today -see more-
