Krzysztof Gofryk


Krzysztof Gofryk is a scientist in Nuclear Fuels and Materials Division and a lead for the Center for Quantum Actinide Science and Technology (C-QAST) at Idaho National Laboratory (INL). He obtained his Ph.D. from the Institute of Low Temperature and Structure Research of the Polish Academy of Sciences in 2006. Before joining INL, he worked at Max Planck Institute for Chemical Physics of Solids (Dresden, Germany), Institute for Transuranic Elements (Karlsruhe, Germany), and Los Alamos and Oak Ridge National Laboratories. He is a recipient of the DOE Early Career Award, the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE), and INL’s Exceptional Achievement Award. His work focuses on strongly correlated electron systems at low temperatures, pressure, and strong magnetic fields, including transport and magnetism in 5f-electron materials, quantum criticality, heavy fermion physics, and spin−orbit coupled systems.
