Three Oak Ridge National Laboratory staff members—Scott Curran, Ron Graves, and Janet Hopson—were recognized following a U.S. Department of Energy Vehicle Technologies Office, or VTO, annual merit review.
Curran was recognized with a 2013 VTO Research and Development Award for “his leadership in transitioning reactivity controlled compression ignition combustion from a single cylinder to a multi-cylinder engine using bio-renewable fuels.”
Graves also received a VTO Research and Development Award for his “exemplary achievements on the Advanced Engine Cross-Cut Team, U.S. DRIVE Engine Tech Team and 21st Century Truck.”
Hopson was recognized for her management of the www.fueleconomy.gov website, described by the VTO as “one of the most widely used federal websites.”
Curran, Graves, and Hopson all work in ORNL’s Energy and Transportation Science Division.
