Dane Morgan

Harvey D. Spangler Professor of Materials Science & Engineering

College of Engineering

​Dane Morgan's research combines thermodynamic and kinetic theory and computational modeling of atomic scale processes to understand and design materials. Application areas include nuclear materials (fuels and cladding), battery and fuel cell electrodes, earth mantle materials, sorption at water mineral interfaces, and electronic materials.
