Dr. Sean J. Hearne is an American born physicist, who is the President and CEO of the Southeastern Universities Research Association (SURA) and served as the 43’rd president of the Materials Research Society. Heare was elected to be a fellow of the American Physical Society in 2020.[1][2]


Hearne received his B.S. in Aviation Technology (1991) from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, and his M.S. (1997) and Ph.D. (2000) in Solid State Physics from Arizona State University.


Hearne spent 18 years as a scientist and manager at Sandia National Laboratories in Albuquerque, New Mexico, where he rose to be the co-director of the Center for Integrated Nanotechnologies. In 2019, joined Oak Ridge National Laboratory as the director of first the Center for Nanophase Materials Sciences and then the director of the Materials Science and Technology Division (MSTD). In 2022, Hearne became the President and CEO of the Southeastern Universities Research Association (SURA). [3][4][5][6]


Hearne’s published research spans material science, electrodeposition, grid scale energy storage, micro- and nanofabrication, and III-V semiconductors, with his most highly site work being in residual stress in thin films.[7][8]
