Innocent Tsorxe received his M.S. degree in nuclear engineering
from Texas A&M University in May 2017. He worked with Dr.
Craig Marianno on a project to measure background radiation levels
at the TEEX Disaster City facility. These measurements will
be used as part of the preparation for field exercises at the site
involving short-lived radiological contamination.
Tsorxe earned a B.S. in Radiation Technology/Health Physics from
Alcorn State University in Mississippi in 2014. While
pursuing his graduate degree, Tsorxe worked an Assistant Health
Physicist at the Texas A&M University's Environmental Health
and Safety (EHS) Office. He also traveled to Cambridge,
Massachusetts to participate in a consequence management training
workshop hosted by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He
credits his experience with NSSPI for developing his understanding
of how "health physicists can use their current, typical role to
contribute in nuclear security issues."
Tsorxe successfully defended his thesis in January 2017 and
joined Duke University and Duke University Medical Center in
Durham, NC as a health physicist.
