ANS is committed to advancing, fostering, and promoting the development and application of nuclear sciences and technologies to benefit society.
Explore the many uses for nuclear science and its impact on energy, the environment, healthcare, food, and more.
Young Members Group
The Young Members Group works to encourage and enable all young professional members to be actively involved in the efforts and endeavors of the Society at all levels (Professional Divisions, ANS Governance, Local Sections, etc.) as they transition from the role of a student to the role of a professional. It sponsors non-technical workshops and meetings that provide professional development and networking opportunities for young professionals, collaborates with other Divisions and Groups in developing technical and non-technical content for topical and national meetings, encourages its members to participate in the activities of the Groups and Divisions that are closely related to their professional interests as well as in their local sections, introduces young members to the rules and governance structure of the Society, and nominates young professionals for awards and leadership opportunities available to members.

Route readiness elements in a large-scale spent nuclear fuel transportation system
The scale and duration of a national campaign to transport spent nuclear fuel (SNF) from commercial nuclear power plants around the United States would be unprecedented. A meticulous level of planning that considers many elements is needed to inspire public confidence and support.
Mathematics & Computation (M&C) 2021 Speaker
Nick Gentile got a B.S. in Physics from Carnegie-Mellon University in 1986 and a Ph.D. in Applied Science from the University of California, Davis in 1994 as part of UCD’s Department of Applied Science located at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. As a summer student, graduate student, post-doc, term employee, and career employee at LLNL, Nick has spent over 30 years at LNLL. His current job is developing Monte Carlo particle transport algorithms and software for current generation and future advanced computing architectures. His research interests include radiation hydrodynamics, hybrid Monte Carlo/Deterministic methods, and object-oriented programing. He organized the 25th International Conference on Transport Theory, Monterey, California in 2017, serves as associate editor of the Journal of Computational and Theoretical Transport, and is the current chair of the ANS Mathematics and Computation Division.
