Description

Dear NSE Friends,

A Memorial Service to celebrate the life and career of the late Dr. Thomas J. McKrell, will take place on Wednesday, November 29, 2017 at MIT’s Nuclear Reactor Building (NW12-222) and will begin promptly at 4:00pm. The celebration will include technical tributes, a trip to the Green Lab, including the unveiling of a photo portrait of Tom, and light refreshments will be served at the conclusion of the activities.

Dr. Thomas J. McKrell was a research scientist and the director of the MIT Thermal Hydraulics and Materials in Extreme Environments Laboratory (known as the “Green Lab” to everyone in NSE), within the Center for Advanced Nuclear Energy (CANES) from May 2006 onward. He led the transformation of the lab into a flexible multiuse tool, supporting up to eight different simultaneous experiments – all carefully maintained and orchestrated to be safe and efficient. He served as a technical leader in the area of heat transfer enhancement through the use of nanofluids, on which he organized sessions and gave invited lectures at domestic and global meetings. As a mentor, many of his students and colleagues would remember and appreciate the attributes of Dr. McKrell, who not only embodied their research, but was equally committed and dedicated to their individual growth.
