Jacob L. Bair was raised on a farm near Ephrata, WA. He earned a B.S. degree in Mechanical Engineering with a second major in French from Washington State University in December of 2012, then his Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering from Missouri University of Science and Technology in December of 2016. His research has been on experimental and computational studies of the microstructural evolution of materials using scanning electron microscopy with Electron Backscatter Diffraction, Phase Field Modeling, and Molecular Dynamics. Topics he has researched include hydrides in zirconium fuel rod claddings, grain boundary migration in face centered cubic materials, and twinning in nickel. In NPSI, he supports the “Development of Phase Field Modeling to Predict Morphologies of Plutonium Oxalate” project.
