Georgi Tsiklauri, Retired Laboratory Fellow at the Battelle Memorial Institute, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Scientists for dedication, achievements, and leadership in thermal physics and nuclear power.

Dr. Tsiklauri is a leading expert in scientific research and engineering pertaining to thermal physics and nuclear power plants. Prior to retiring in 2012, he led teams and projects for 14 years at the Battelle Memorial Institute. Before moving to the United States, he was the Department Director at the Moscow Power Engineering Institute. An accomplished researcher, Dr. Tsiklauri is most proud of his achievement pertaining to the two-phase flow. In addition, he holds patents for nuclear power plants and became a fellow of the International Center for Heat and Mass Transfer in 1978.

Despite being interested in the fields of thermal science, thermal dynamics and heat transference, Dr. Tsiklauri didn’t know if physics and nuclear engineering were for him until a brilliant professor inspired him to go into the field. This prompted him to attend and later graduate from the Moscow Power Engineering Institute in 1959. He continued down this path at the Moscow Power Energy Institute, receiving a PhD in thermal physics in 1968. Always dedicated to his education, Dr. Tsiklauri earned a Doctor of Science in thermal physics from the Russian Academy of Sciences in 1985.

In his retirement, Dr. Tsiklauri has been able to focus more on his hobby of painting. He reflects on other accomplishments in his career such as publishing “Two-Phase Cooling and Corrosion in Nuclear Power Plants” and contributing to numerous articles and professional journals. Throughout his career, he maintained affiliation with the American Nuclear Society and the United States Tennis Association.
