Professor Allain has received the 2017 College of Engineering Dean’s Award for Excellence in Research for his work unifying concepts from nanotechnology, nuclear engineering and materials science.

NPRE Department Head Jim Stubbins highlighted Prof. Allain’s research group for its impact forging new fundamental and applied research directions in emergent areas of material surfaces and interfaces exposed to extreme environments, as well as pioneering the use of in-situ and in-operando surface diagnosis and directed irradiation synthesis, complemented with multi-scale modeling developed to support these research themes.
