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.
Degrees Earned by NSSPI Students* by Year
*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 Student Studies the Conversion of DPRK Research Reactor Fuel to Low-Enriched Uranium - Research reactors around the world serve a vital role in a variety of uses, from education and training in nuclear technology to producing radioisotopes for medical and industrial use. According to recent Center for Nuclear Security Science and Policy Initiatives (NSSPI) graduate Dongyoul Lee, the propagation of research reactors was fueled after President Dwight D. […]
- NSSPI Student Performs Criticality and Radiation Safety Analyses of a Micro-Nuclear Reactor Design - Micro-reactors are gaining attention for their simple design and their ability to be deployed for electricity production or heat for industrial use in remote locations, from commercial or residential areas to military bases. Alfredo Cortez is a recent graduate who worked with Center for Nuclear Security Science and Policy Initiatives (NSSPI) Director Dr. Sunil Chirayath […]
- NSSPI and Argonne National Laboratory Conduct Nuclear Facilities Experience in Europe - In May, the Center for Nuclear Security Science and Policy Initiatives (NSSPI) worked with Argonne National Laboratory to organize an International Nuclear Facilities Experience (INFE) in Europe for ten US graduate students working in areas related to nuclear safeguards and nonproliferation. This INFE focused on facility visits in a variety of European countries that are […]
