Saehyun Choi worked with Dr. Sunil Chirayath in investigating the proliferation resistance of a nuclear fuel cycle that recycles reprocessed uranium after re-enrichment. This work involved research on multicomponent mixture enrichment calculations followed by fuel cycle analysis of special nuclear material production and depletion to determine the denaturing of fissile materials. He graduated in August 2021 with a Master of Science degree in nuclear engineering.
Choi is an active duty Captain in the Republic of Korea Army. His previous assignments include the S-3 Logistics Officer of the 110th INF BN(MECH), the Liaison Officer of the Eighth United States Army(EUSA) and the Platoon Leader of the 102nd ABCT. Before joining NSSPI, Choi received his Bachelor’s degree in Applied Physics from the Korean Military Academy in 2013.
