Professor Jenifer C. Braley

Jenifer BraleyProfessor Braley joined the faculty at Colorado School of Mines in the fall of 2012 after a two-year employment at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory. During her undergraduate research, she studied the solid-state synthesis of f-block elements at Colorado State University with Professor Peter Dorhout. In 2006 she joined the group of Professor Ken Nash at Washington State University (WSU). Here she examined the fundamental solution chemistry of the f-elements relevant to solid-liquid and liquid-liquid separations chemistry. While in graduate school, she was able complete an intership at Eichrom Technologies with Dr. Phil Horwitz and bolstered her understanding of extraction chromatographic (solid-liquid) separations. She currently serves as a member of the ACS National Younger Chemists Committee. She has joined the faculty at Colorado School of Mines to educate students on the fundamental and applied concerns of nuclear chemistry and radiochemistry (including the nuclear fuel cycle, nuclear forensics, and radioisotope production). As a member of the Nuclear Engineering Program at Mines, she actively engages the U.S. Geological Survey 1 MW TRIGA Nuclear Reactor on the Denver Federal Center to accomplish research and educational goals.

Graduate Students

Ms. Anna Baldwin

My research focus is in the area of nuclear forensics, specifically, the identification of trace metal signatures characteristic of spent nuclear fuel reprocessing methods.

Lt. Col. Michael Koehl

My research is focused on the energy dependence of fission product yields can be used in nuclear forensics.

Ms. Morgan Luckey

My research is focused on improving the efficiency of trivalent actinide/lanthanide separations.

Mr. Kevin McCann

My research is focused on methods to improve the separate of Americium in used nuclear fuel reprocessing.

Mr. Michael Servis

My research is focused on the role that molecular structure of extractant molecules plays in organic phase aggregation during solvent extraction in spent nuclear fuel reprocessing.
