NSSPI student Jennifer Erchinger has been selected to attend The 2nd International Seminar on Global Nuclear Human Resource Development for Safety, Security and Safeguards, on February 18-26, 2013 in Tokyo.
Erchinger is currently working with NSSPI faculty member Dr. Craig Marianno and will be earning her Master’s degree in Health Physics in the spring of 2013. Her primary research focus has been in the development of a specialized radiation portal that will be used to scan livestock following a radiological incident such as a nuclear power plant accident or terrorist event. Following her Master’s degree, she plans to pursue her Ph.D. at Texas A&M where she will continue her research in nuclear emergency response issues.
The Nuclear Engineering Department faculty nominated Erchinger to attend and participate in the international seminar as a representative of students from the department and from Texas A&M University in general.
