From December 11-16, 2011, NSSPI staff and students presented their work at the GLOBAL 2011 conference held at Makuhari Messe in the Chiba province of Japan. The first day of the conference was focused on the affects of the Fukushima-Daiichi accident on the nuclear futures of nations such as France, Russia, the U.S., Kazakhstan, India, and, of course, Japan. The second day was devoted to in-depth discussions on advances in technology related to the back-end of the nuclear fuel cycle.
NSSPI students Braden Goddard, Julia Eigenbrodt, and Alison Goodsell were able to present their work on spent fuel measurements and nuclear forensics to intimate groups of subject matter experts from across the globe in the ten concurrent sessions of presentations that comprised the remaining days of the conference. Former NSSPI student, Dr. Adrienne LaFleur, also presented her work at the conference.
NSSPI staff member Claudio Gariazzo gave a presentation on the TAMU nuclear engineering department’s numerous research and educational endeavors in the area of nuclear nonproliferation before an audience of nuclear engineering educators from Japan, ROK, Russia, Kazakhstan, the U.S., Canada, and France.
