University of Florida–led consortium to research nuclear forensics
A 16-university team of 31 scientists and engineers, under the title Consortium for Nuclear Forensics and led by the University of Florida, has been selected by the Department of Energy’s National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) to develop the next generation of new technologies and insights in nuclear forensics.
ANS STEM Academy Educator Series
January 26, 2023|5:00–6:00PM (6:00–7:00PM EST)
Available to All Users
The American Nuclear Society STEM Academy presents a free webinar on the nuclear fuel cycle developed specifically for K-12 educators. Mary Lou Dunzik-Gougar, a professor at Idaho State University and former ANS president, will explain the nuclear fuel cycle, current technologies for spent fuel handling, and emerging technologies that reimagine nuclear waste management.
About Mary Lou Dunzik-Gougar
Dunzik-Gougar is the associate dean of the Idaho State University (ISU) College of Science and Engineering, associate professor of nuclear engineering and a senior reactor operator at ISU’s Aerojet-General Nucleonics nuclear reactor, commonly known as the AGN-201. Presently, she coordinates the nuclear engineering curriculum at ISU and teaches core graduate and undergraduate courses. Dunzik-Gougar also performs nuclear materials research and is involved in regional and discipline accreditations, ISU’s international program development, and reactor administration.
