Congratulations to Dr. Will Doniger!

Congratulations to NAMRG graduate student Will Doniger who successfully defended his PhD thesis entitled “Corrosion and Electrochemistry Studies for Molten Salt Reactor Alloy Development.” Will has played a significant role in the molten salt research program at UW, specifically in the development of electrochemical techniques and installation of gloveboxes and molten salt handling systems.

Will’s work has been published in journals including Corrosion Science, Journal of Electroanalytical Chemistry, and Journal of Electrochemical Society. He has presented his work at diverse conferences and participated in Molten Salt Workshops held at Oak Ridge National Laboratory and Molten Salt Boot Camp held in Delft, Netherlands where his research won awards. Will will continue working in the area of molten salts as a post-doctoral researcher at Argonne National Laboratory.
