My research interests lie in the effects of radiation on alloys used forreactor applications.  These effects include radiation induced segregation,swelling, metastable phase formation, and order-disorder phenomena.  My mainfocus lies on the influence of radiation on intergranular stress-corrosioncracking in austenitic and nickel-base alloys in supercritical water.   Myresearch also investigates the effects of grain boundary engineering onprevention of stress-corrosion cracking.
