Kevin M. Fox is a fellow engineer in the Environmental, Materials, and Energy Sciences Directorate of the Savannah River National Laboratory (SRNL). Dr. Fox’s current research focus is the development of innovative waste form compositions for the immobilization of nuclear wastes. Most recently, he has worked to further the understanding of crystallization in high level waste glasses to allow for maximizing the incorporation of waste constituents, and developed compositions for high waste concentration cementitious waste forms to minimize disposal volumes.
Dr. Fox has a background in structure/property relationships in ceramic materials, with a concentration on high temperature deformation of ceramic composites and advanced microstructural characterization techniques. He is a past Chair of The American Ceramic Society’s Nuclear and Environmental Technology Division, and currently serves on the Society’s Board of Directors.
Dr. Fox has authored more than 50 peer-reviewed publications, co-edited 6 volumes, and has given more than 70 technical society presentations. He received his Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering from the Pennsylvania State University and a B.S. in Ceramic Engineering from Alfred University.
