Logan Michael Scott

Logan Michael Scott is a PhD graduate student at Texas A&M University studying nuclear engineering under Dr. Jean Ragusa. Scott graduated from Oklahoma State University in 2014 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemical Engineering. At TAMU, he is a part of the Reactor Physics and Computational Science research group that focuses on a variety of areas ranging from large-scale scientific simulations to reactor neutronics. His research interests include transient fuel testing and development of full core analytical methods.

Scott is currently investigating the localized effects of thermal Doppler broadening on test vehicles within the Transient Reactor Test (TREAT) facility in coordination with Idaho National Laboratories. As an intern at the Laboratory, he is also investigating methods of fuel motion monitoring for test samples within TREAT.

In 2013, Scott served as an American Nuclear Society intern within the Washington Internships for Students of Engineering (WISE) program, which strives to equip engineers with the training to effectively inform policy decisions. His research, in coordination with the Wentz Foundation, investigated the economic incentivization of domestic production of molybdenum-99 for medical applications. Other research efforts include development of sustainable acculturation process for blue-green algae strains for ethanol development, as well as intellectual property and industry ethics under Dr. Martin High at Oklahoma State University.

Scott is an active member in the American Nuclear Society, Institute of Nuclear Materials Management, and the American Institute of Chemical Engineers. He has also served as lead and assistant lecturer for a diverse lecture series in Cambridge, United Kingdom ranging from medicine to travel narrative and cultural geography.
