Michael Brady, a materials scientist at the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), has been elected a Fellow of ASM International.

ASM International, the world’s largest association of metals-centric scientists and engineers, honored Brady ‘for innovative development of novel alloy design principles for the control of surface chemistry in structural and functional materials with widespread scientific, engineering and societal impact.’

Brady, an R&D staff member in ORNL’s materials science and technology division, has conducted research in corrosion science and developed alloys used in biofuel production, fuel cells, electrolyzers and low-cost biomass cook stoves for the developing world.

Brady led an ORNL team that won an R&D 100 Award in 2009 for the development of alumina-forming austenitic stainless steel, a high-temperature corrosion-resistant alloy. Brady also won the 2015 ORNL Inventor of the Year Award, the TMS Brimacombe Medalist Award, and a Materials Performance Corrosion Innovation of the Year Award in the Materials Design category.
