The inaugural Doctoral Research Expo hosted by the Department of Nuclear Science and Engineering turned the Stata Center's Student Street into a forum for dialogue and ideas, which ranged from combating noise in quantum operations to the conceptual design of an annular-fueled water reactor.

The March 10 event brought together students from all areas of research within the department, with nearly 40 presenting posters on a broad array of topics. Three professors — Jacopo Buongiorno, Paola Cappellero and Dennis Whyte — judged a best poster contest, awarding Michael Short for his poster "A Functionally Graded Composite for Corrosion Resistance in High Temperature Lead and Lead-Bismuth Cooled Systems."
