Yanuar (Ady) Setiawan received his Master’s degree in May of 2018. As a Master’s student he worked on a project to develop a stochastic approach to evaluate nuclear facility security with Dr. Chirayath. He developed a software code that can measure the effectiveness of the physical protection system using a multi-path analysis that includes all of the possible intrusion path options in the facility. The developed code utilizes a stochastic approach compared to the deterministic approach used in the EASI model, and is able to analyze the whole facility. Setiawan was born and raised in Indonesia. He did his undergraduate degree in Nuclear Engineering at Universitas Gadjah Mada (UGM) in his home country and graduated in 2015. He came to Texas A&M University in the Fall 2016 to continue his study and research on nuclear security, safeguards and nonproliferation. Upon graduation, he returned to Indonesia to become a lecturer at UGM, and he is currently pursuing a Ph.D. at the Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology in Korea.
