Nuclear Engineering - Ph.D. / Sc.D.
Epistemologies of safety : a comparative study of contemporary French and American reactor design practices (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2019)What makes for a safe nuclear power reactor? One of school of thought (that has significant traction within the academic nuclear engineering community) calls for using risk as a surrogate for safety. Safety then becomes a ...
Impact of extended defects on ion diffusion and reactivity in binary oxides : assessed by atomistic simulations (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2019)Extended defects, such as dislocations, grain boundaries and surface step edges, are ubiquitous in nanomaterials that function in electrochemical devices and heterogeneous catalysts. The objective of this thesis is to ...
