Purdue University, USA


Dr.Ahmed Hassanein is the Paul L.Wattelet Professor and Head of School of Nuclear Engineering and director of CMUXE at Purdue University. Prof. Hassanein has more than 3 years of experience in research and development in the fields of nuclear and plasma physics, engineering, and material science. Prof. Hassanein is nationally and internationally recognized as one of the world\\\\s fore most leaders in the area of modeling and benchmarking material responses to different radiation and particle sources. He developed unique models and comprehensive computer packages as well as the 
state-of-the art experimental  facilities to predict material behavior, lifetime issues, plasma evolution, and fluid hydrodynamics under various irradiation conditions. These models and results are being used in several national and international research fields. He has authored about 450 journal publications and technical report in more than 30 different national and international journals in physics, engineering, materials, and computer science. Before coming to Purdue, Prof. Hassanein was senior scientist and group leader and the director of Fusion Power Program at the Department of Energy\\\\s Argonne National Laboratory. He is fellow of SPIE, ANS, AAAS and IEEE.
