Yanuar (Ady) Setiawan is a Ph.D. student with NSSPI. 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. He received his Master’s degree in May of 2018. 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. He joined NSSPI and does his research on Physical Protection System (PPS) evaluation. He is planning to continue to PhD program with research on nuclear safeguards once he is finished with his master’s degree.rn
