Associate Teaching Professor, Nuclear Engineering

Martin Nieto-Perez is an Associate Teaching Professor at the Ken and Mary Alice Department of Nuclear Engineering. Martin received his BS (1997) in Chemical Engineering from Universidad Autonoma Metropolitana in Mexico City, and a MS (2001) and PhD (2004) in Nuclear Engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. After his PhD he held a postdoctoral appointment at Argonne National Laboratory between 2004 and 2006. Between 2008 and 2021 he was professor/researcher at CICATA, one of the research units of Instituto Politecnico Nacional in Queretaro, Mexico. Martin’s research focuses on two main thrusts: plasma-material interactions in both high and low temperature plasmas, and neutronics and kinetic modeling/design relevant to the insertion of fusion-based neutron sources in the nuclear fuel cycle both in the front-end (as fissile material breeders) and the back end (actinide burners, spent fuel regenerators).
