Assistant Research Scientist
Adam Burak has experience in electrochemistry, molten salts, high-temperature advanced reactor systems, and reactor thermal hydraulics. He sees nuclear energy as a critical component of clean energy. Advanced electrolytes, such as molten salts and liquid metals, can also help enable renewable energy and decarbonize industrial processes. Adam's goal is to aid in the development of these advanced technologies, to support the pursuit of net zero. He has been involved in the Versatile Test Reactor program, and is currently working on a project to develop shaft seals for molten salt pumps.
