Jordan Evans

Jordan Evans was born and raised near Houston, Texas. He earned his B.S. in nuclear engineering from Texas A&M University (TAMU) in 2011, with a thesis related to resolving the “corrosion problem” associated with the advanced liquid fluoride thorium reactor (LFTR). He earned his M.S. in nuclear engineering from TAMU in 2013, and his thesis topic, “Improving Targeted Radionuclide Therapy using Nuclear Nanotechnology”, won 1st prize in the TAMU annual university-wide research competition, Student Research Week, for developing a cancer therapy which dramatically reduces side effects and radiative dose to healthy tissue as compared to traditional external beam radiation therapy. Jordan has conducted research in collaboration with Shell Oil Company, Westinghouse Electric Company, Lockheed Martin, and others. He is currently pursuing a Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering with a focus on nuclear nanomaterials at the TAMU Fuel Cycle and Materials Laboratory (FCML) under Dr. Sean McDeavitt. His Ph.D. research is related to additively manufactured and nuclear nanomaterials resistant to radiation damage at high temperatures. Jordan is an active member of the American Nuclear Society (ANS), the International Thorium Energy Organization (IThEO), and the National Eagle Scout Association.
