Steven Hayes

Nuclear engineering

Dr Steven Hayes is an internationally known researcher in nuclear fuels, especially behavior under irradiation. He earned bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degrees in Nuclear engineering from Texas A&M University, College Station, Texas, and took most of his grad school electives in physical chemistry and materials science. He has authored 22 journal articles and written 81 papers presented at conferences in many countries.

Dr Hayes is also a Christian, and a ThM student with Tyndale (Ft. Worth, Texas) in Systematic Theology, and says:

“The more serious my Christian faith has become, the deeper my commitment to young-earth creation!”
