Bio: Dr. Syed Alam is an Assistant Professor of Nuclear Engineering and Radiation Science at the Missouri University of Science and Technology (Missouri S&T). He received Ph.D. (2018) and MPhil (2013) in Nuclear Engineering from the University of Cambridge. Prior to joining Missouri S&T, he was a Researcher at French Atomic Energy Commission. He also worked as a MeV Fellow at Argonne National Laboratory and a Nonproliferation Fellow at the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology.

 Dr. Alam’s research interests and expertise broadly lie in the intersection of nuclear systems, explainable machine learning, and computational materials — focusing on hybrid physics and data-driven analysis that warrants frequent excursions among the boundaries of applied mathematics and data science. To date, Dr. Alam published 70+ peer-reviewed articles. He received several awards and honors for his research and teaching. He received the University Outstanding Teaching Award 2021 by Missouri S&T. He was awarded the Most Exemplary Graduate Fellow on “Nuclear Nonproliferation Fellowship 2017” by the Korea Advanced Institute of Science & Tech (KAIST). He was also the winner of the ANS Best Student Paper Award (ICAPP 2016), nominated for the Young generation/Student Award for the Outstanding Paper (ICAPP 2017), and ANS Best Technical Poster Award (NURETH-16). For the continuation of an exceptionally promising piece of Ph.D. research, he was also awarded the Cambridge Philosophical Society Research Studentships Award (2017). His work has also been featured in the “ICE Business Times” Magazine and invited for a TV interview on Channel S (a UK-based TV Channel).
