Luis E. Herranz has led the research group on Nuclear Safety in CIEMAT since 1999. He graduated in Quantum Chemistry (1986) and did a master on Nuclear Engineering at the Instituto de Estudios de la Energía in 1987. He defended his PhD thesis on Thermal-hydraulics of passive systems in 1996 and in 2016 he became Research Professor on Nuclear Safety, the highest category in Spanish research scale. Among his fields of interest are: Severe Accidents, Thermal-hydraulics of advanced nuclear systems, Thermo-mechanics of nuclear fuels and Safety and power cycles of IV Gen reactors. As a result of his research he’s published more than 100 papers in refereed journals and has made more than 200 contributions to international conferences and congresses.

At present, after more than 30 years of professional career, he has been Chairman of the OECD-NEA Working Group on Analysis and Management of Accidents (WGAMA) since 2015 and after several years coordinating the Sub-Technical Area on Source Term within SNETP/NUGENIA, he became Leader of the entire Technical Area 2 on Severe Accidents in 2018. In addition, he is a member of several expert groups of OECD/NEA on Fuel Safety (WGFS) and Reactor Fuel Performance (EGFRP).

Along his career, Luis E. Herranz has collaborated in Universities and national and international graduate, masters and post-graduate courses. He was Co-Director of the Master on Nuclear Engineering and Applications (MINA) for 10 years, organized by UAM/CIEMAT, Professor at the Department of Mechanical Engineering of UPCO (ICAI) on Heat Transfer and on Energy Technologies for another 10 years. Presently, he is a lecturer in a number of masters and post-graduate courses related to nuclear energy and energy technologies.
