Working Across Disciplines
Our faculty bring expertise and experience from a variety of industries and academic programs. Their research interests include nuclear reactor design, computational nuclear reactor theory, and radioactive waste management.
The NETL reactor, designed by General Atomics, is a TRIGA Mark II nuclear research reactor. The NETL is the newest of the current fleet of U.S. university reactors.
The Nuclear and Applied Robotics Group is an interdisciplinary research group whose mission is to develop and deploy advanced robotics in hazardous environments in order to minimize risk for the human operator.
Congratulations to recently graduated Dr. Kenny Dayman who has accpeted a Postdoctoral Research Associate position in the Nuclear Forensics Research in the Reactor and Nuclear Systems Division at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. Kenny’s dissertation Determination of Independent and Cumulative Fission Product Yields with Gamma Spectrometry was performed under Dr. Biegalski. Kenny follows in the footsteps of Dr. Roger Kapsimalis (2013) who has a staff position at ONRL also in nuclear forensics investigations.
