NSSPI students have unique opportunities for research, education and professional development. NSSPI students participate in foreign field experiences, present their research results in national and international forums, and have premier internship opportunities at national laboratories.
NSSPI faculty and students established at Texas A&M the first student chapter of the Institute of Nuclear Materials Management (INMM). Students working on NSSPI-sponsored projects also are members of both the Student INMM chapter and the International INMM chapter. As members of the organization, our students have opportunities to present research projects, publish articles and immerse themselves in the professional nuclear nonproliferation culture supported by laboratories and governments around the world. See a directory of our NSSPI graduates.

*NSSPI students are students who were advised by NSSPI faculty members. NSSPI has supported students in many other research groups and departments, as is partly reflected in the list of theses and dissertations.
- NSSPI and Argonne National Laboratory Lead Nuclear Facilities Experience in Japan - From March 13-17, the Center for Nuclear Security Science and Policy Initiatives (NSSPI), along with Argonne National Laboratory, conducted an International Nuclear Facilities Experience (INFE) in Japan. Sponsored by the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA)’s Office of International Nuclear Safeguards – Human Capital Development subprogram, the INFE is an opportunity for graduate-level engineering, science, and […]
- NSSPI student supports nuclear forensics with experimental studies on irradiated low-enriched uranium - Nuclear forensics involves the analysis of nuclear and other radioactive materials to determine their origin and history in support of investigations into nuclear security events. Researchers with the Center for Nuclear Security Science and Policy Initiatives (NSSPI) at Texas A&M University have spent over a decade studying nuclear forensics signatures. This began in 2011 when […]
- NSSPI student investigates radiation effects on avalanche photodiodes - Radiation detectors are often deployed in extreme environments, including areas of high radiation. Radiation can degrade or alter the performance of detectors and their components, compromising their intended function. As part of his dissertation research, Dr. Robert Zedric studied radiation effects on avalanche photodiodes (APDs), special light sensors that can be found in certain types […]
