Nicholas Winner

Ph.D. Candidate

At Berkeley, my research revolves around a multi-centered project funded by the Energy Frontiers Research Council. This project seeks to understand the fundamental relationships between corrosion, radiation, and microstructure in material systems relevant to Generation IV nuclear reactors. I work on using ab-initio and molecular dynamic modeling approaches to describe the behavior of these materials at liquid-metal interfaces under extreme conditions. I am interested in creating general models of complex interfacial phenomena that can be generalized to high throughput analysis of interatomic potentials, interface structure, and corrosion pathways.

During my free time I enjoy golfing, cooking, and music.
