Heath Distinguished Postdoctoral Associate Program. Sun holds a Ph.D. in materials science and engineering from Texas A&M University. His research areas include small-scale mechanical testing of irradiated materials, advanced post- irradiation examination of nuclear materials and fundamental understanding of irradiation effects in materials. The postdoctoral appointment has been established to attract, recruit, develop and inspire early-career researchers who have the potential to develop into INL’s future scientific and technical leaders. It is named after Dr. Russell L. Heath, who came to the Atomic Energy Commission’s National Reactor Testing Station in 1952 and gained an international reputation as the “Father of Gamma Ray Spectrometry.” Mike Calley Idaho State University recognized alumnus Mike Calley with its “Outstanding Engineer of the Year” award. Calley is a department manager in INL’s Nuclear Science and Technology Directorate, and his 27-year career with the lab has focused on probabilistic risk assessment, safety evaluations and hazards assessments. INL’s battery program earned recognition from President Obama in his Feb. 6 weekly address. “In Idaho, our battery testing center is helping electric cars run longer on a single charge.” Masashi ‘Masa’ Shimada received the Miya-Abdou Fusion Nuclear Technology Award. Shimada was honored with this prestigious award at the International Symposium on Fusion Nuclear Technology (ISFNT-12) Conference. He is the first person working in the U.S. to receive this award in 13 years. This early career award recognizes significant contributions in the development of fusion nuclear technologies.
