Rensselaer professor Jie Lian receives NSF CAREER Award
Date:4/3/2012

Troy, N.Y. Jie Lian, assistant professor in the Department of Mechanical, Aerospace, and Nuclear Engineering at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, has won a prestigious Faculty Early Career Development Award (CAREER) from the National Science Foundation (NSF).

Lian will use the five-year, $500,000 award to further his research into the design of nanomaterials for use in nuclear energy systems. The CAREER Award is given to faculty members at the beginning of their academic careers and is one of NSF's most competitive awards, placing emphasis on high-quality research and novel education initiatives.

"It is a tremendous honor for Dr. Lian to be selected as a recipient of the NSF CAREER Award, which recognizes his potential to become a leading scholar in nuclear engineering and advanced materials," said David Rosowsky, dean of the School of Engineering at Rensselaer. "Jie joins an ever-expanding list of NSF CAREER Award recipients at Rensselaer. We congratulate him on this important achievement."

Lian's research program is focused on better understanding advanced materials and nanomaterials to help further nuclear energy production. Looking forward to the design of future generations of nuclear reactors and other nuclear technologies, it will be necessary to develop materials with enhanced performance that are able to sustain exposure to radiation, high temperatures, and corrosion. Such radiation-tolerant materials may be able to extend the lifetime of components, and could contribute to the safer, more reliable operation of nuclear systems. This study of "nuclear materials" bridges together the fields of advanced materials, nanotechnology, and nuclear engineering.

With his CAREER project, titled "Radiation Interaction with Nanostructured CeramicsIntegrating Materials Solutions into Nuclear Education," Lian will study the behavior of certain nanostructured ceramics when they are exposed to environments with extreme levels of ra
