Grant S. Bromhal, Ph.D.
Senior Fellow for Geological and Environmental Sciences
Dr. Grant S. Bromhal is a Senior Fellow at the National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL), focusing on Geological and Environmental Sciences. He leads a team that conducts novel research related to unconventional oil and gas recovery, enhanced oil recovery, carbon storage, enhanced geothermal systems, and other related issues.
Dr. Bromhal is the Technical Director of the National Risk Assessment Partnership (NRAP), work for which he and his collaborators won, in 2017, an R&D 100 award for novel software development. Dr. Bromhal is also the director of the Science-informed Machine Learning for Accelerating Real-Time Decisions in Subsurface Applications (SMART Initiative).
He has been a research engineer at NETL for more than 17 years. During that time, he has been a Team Lead in Predictive Geosciences; the U.S. DOE’s technical representative on the Multiagency Collaboration (MAC) on Unconventional Oil and Gas; and a member of the DOE working group on well integrity in response to the Aliso Canyon incident.
Dr. Bromhal earned his Ph.D. in Civil and Environmental Engineering from Carnegie Mellon University and his BS/BA degree in Civil Engineering and Math from West Virginia University. He is the recipient of the 2007 Hugh Guthrie Award for Innovation at NETL, the 2010 U.S. Geological Survey Director’s Award for Exemplary Service to the Nation, and the 2011 U.S. Department of Energy Secretary’s Achievement Honor Award.
- Advanced Test Reactor Complex, the nation’s premier resource for fuels and material irradiation testing, nuclear safety research and nuclear isotope production;.
- Materials and Fuels Complex, the center of DOE’s advanced nuclear fuel development initiatives and post-irradiation capabilities;.
- Research and Education Campus, the front door to INL and the center of INL’s computing capabilities, with a variety of research, administrative, educational and technical support facilities.
INL is responding to the growing demands of our modern world with innovations in transportation systems, renewable energy integration, advanced manufacturing, biomass feedstock assembly and environmental sustainability. INL also helps the U.S. departments of Defense and Homeland Security by using its unique capabilities to support efforts to secure industrial control systems from cyber and nuclear threats, develop advanced nuclear facility safeguards, and design advanced wireless sensors and protocols. INL enables explosives impact analysis, armor development and radiological training. To enrich and focus this research and development portfolio, INL is committed to collaboration with regional, national and international leaders in academia, industry and government.
