Benjamin S. Wellons graduated with a Master of Science degree in nuclear engineering from Texas A&M University in summer of 2022. He received his B.Sc. in Applied Physics from Coastal Carolina University in 2020. As a NSSPI student, he worked with Dr. Shikha Prasad on modeling a detection environment for the Los Alamos Neutron Science Center at LANL, and his thesis work involved the development of an autonomous detection method for advanced reactors. Upon graduation, Wellons joined the Cyclotron Institute at Texas A&M and is pursuing a Ph.D. degree in Physics.
