J.T. Falkner was a Ph.D. student with NSSPI who worked with Dr. Marianno on a project to analyze the performance of mobile radiation detection systems with respect to how fast the systems are moving. Falkner is an active duty Lieutenant in the Medical Service Corps of the United States Navy. His previous assignments include the submarine tender USS Emory S. Land and the Naval Dosimetry Center. He received a Master’s degree in Applied Physics from Johns Hopkins University in 2010. He successfully defended his dissertation in February 2018 and graduated with a Ph.D. in nuclear engineering from Texas A&M University in May of 2018.
