Dr. Robert N. Hill

Robert Hill, Technical Director for Advanced Nuclear Energy R&D

May 1, 2015
Robert Hill, senior nuclear engineer and technical director for advanced nuclear energy research and development, was recently selected by the American Nuclear Society (ANS) to receive the 2015 Walker Lee Cisler Medal. Dr. Hill receives this award for his outstanding scientific and engineering research achievements and international recognition as leader and advocate for the design, development, and deployment of fast reactor technologies. The medal will be presented to Dr. Hill at the ANS Annual Meeting in San Antonio, TX (June 2015).

Dr. Hill has worked at Argonne National Laboratory for the last 27 years with research focus on reactor physics, fast reactor core design, plutonium disposition, and waste management. He is currently National Technical Director for multi-Laboratory advanced reactor R&D activities in current DOE programs; this work includes small modular reactors, advanced structural materials, energy conversion technology, safety and licensing, and system integration. He also serves as U.S. representative for the Generation-IV Sodium Cooled Fast Reactor.

The Nuclear Engineering Division of Argonne National Laboratory congratulates Dr. Hill on this distinguished achievement.
