Dr. McClory has been an Associate Professor of nuclear engineering at the Air Force Institute of Technology (AFIT) since 2008. He is the Director of the Nuclear Weapons Effects, Policy, and Proliferation Graduate Certificate Program, Curriculum Chair of the Nuclear Engineering Program, and the AFTAC Endowed Term Chair Professor for Materials. Dr. McClory's research interests include the effects of radiation on military equipment and electronics; nuclear forensics techniques, and nuclear weapon effects. He has advised 17 PhD students (six current) and 36 M.S. students (three current), received 18 research grants, and published 91 journal articles during his time on the AFIT faculty. He was awarded the MOAA AFIT Outstanding Military Professor in 2010; the Dr. Leslie M. Thornton Teaching Excellence Award in 2011; the Military Legion of Merit in 2012; and the Dean's Distinguished Teaching Professor Award in 2019.

Dr. McClory graduated from the Air Force Institute of Technology with a PhD. in nuclear engineering and from Texas A&M University with an M.S. in physics. Prior to joining the AFIT faculty, Dr. McClory was an active duty Army officer, first as an armor officer and then a nuclear and counter-proliferation operations officer. He served in various assignments in the United States, Europe, and the Middle East; including service during Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2005 to 2006 and as an Assistant Professor of physics at the United States Military Academy from 1993 to 1996.
