Biography:Flanagan's research in metal hydrides is recognized widely and resulted in talks, seminars, and guest professorships throughout the United States, Canada, Europe and Asia. Among his consultancies are Los Alamos and Jet Propulsion Laboratories. His many publications include "Calorimetric Enthalpies of Absorption and Desorption of Protium and Deuterium by Palladium" (Journal of Less-Common Metals, 1991, co-authors).has twice been awarded a Fulbright-Hays Grant. The first (1967) was to study at the University of Meunster, Germany on absorption and diffusion of hydrogen and deuterium in palladium alloys. The second Fulbright (1977) brought him to the University of Utrecht, Netherlands for physical chemical research in fast protonic conduction in solids. Flanagan was named a UVM Scholar in 1985 and received an honorary doctorate from Uppsala University in 1992.
