I am a part time student, outside of school I work with radiation detection technologies for security, health physics and healthcare. I am interested in nuclear safety and safeguards with a focus on policy for new and emerging technologies. I hope to learn more about how commercial products including IoT, Machine Learning and AI can play a role in nuclear non-proliferation and the impact it has on societal views of nuclear energy.
