Associate Engineer

Associate EngineerHarrison joined Modern Hydrogen in 2021 as an Associate Engineer having worked previously at NASA and the Department of Energy.

He made significant contributions to the thermionics program, performing high-temperature vacuum experiments on materials and assemblies for use in the extreme environments within a thermionic converter. His contributions led to a 50x improvement in material lifetime of a critical component and opened the door to prototype- and product-spec lifetimes. He has also made significant contributions in the Hydrogen program, leading several design efforts and contributing to the completion of lab- and pilot-scale Hydrogen reactors.

Harrison received a Bachelor of Arts in Physics from Case Western Reserve University in 2017 and a Master of Science in Materials Science from Oregon State University in 2020. In his free time, Harrison enjoys cooking, hiking, biking, and playing video games.
