Michael Brady, a researcher at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory, has been selected as one of four recipients to receive The Minerals, Metals, and Materials Society (TMS) 2015 Brimacombe Medalist Award.
The society recognized Brady for his “development of groundbreaking new concepts establishing novel alloy design principles for the control of surface chemistry with widespread applied scientific and engineering impact.” He will be honored at the organization’s annual awards ceremony in March.
TMS’s Brimacombe Medal cites the “sustained excellence and achievement” by mid-career professionals.
Brady, an Oak Ridge resident, is a distinguished research staff member in the Material Science and Technology Division’s Corrosion Science and Technology group at ORNL. His research interests include oxidation of multi-phase materials, development of high-temperature alloys for power generation applications, and surface engineering for functional materials such as fuel and solar cells.
