About Oak Ridge National Laboratory

Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) is a science and technology laboratory managed for the U.S. Department of Energy by the University of Tennessee (UT) and Battelle.

ORAU and ORNL have developed and are continuing to build projects around the following subject areas:

  • Neutrino physics studies, including Spallation Neutron Source
  • Neutron science
  • Nuclear physics
  • Biology
  • Biomedicine
  • Advanced materials
  • Advanced computation
  • Environmental science and technology
  • Energy
  • Student and faculty programs

If you’re an undergraduate, recent AAS/BS/MS/PhD graduate, or current graduate student, and are interested in conducting research through an internship at ORNL, Science Education Programs at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) are available  year-round and are open to a variety of academic levels, in a variety of STEM and technical fields.

About the Facilitator

Greg Dreifus (Macaulay at Hunter ’14)

Greg Dreifus is a second year graduate student in mechanical engineering at MIT and alumnus of Macaulay at Hunter College. Greg has had a circuitous and varied academic background, which began with political internships in high school, working for Chuck Schumer and Andrew Cuomo. He entered Macaulay Hunter intending to study English and almost ended up with a triple major in English, German, and math. However, after winning a scholarship for a fifth year of funding, Greg decided to pursue a BA/MA in applied math. After graduation, he found an opportunity working at Oak Ridge National Laboratory’s Manufacturing Demonstration Facility, where he began his work at the forefront of 3D printing technology. At Oak Ridge, he researched the robotic motion of large scale 3D printers, an area he has continued to pursue in his graduate studies at MIT. Greg is also a member of the MIT Graduate Student Council and remains involved and passionate about our political climate as well.
