Kick-starting Engineering Careers in Nuclear Safeguards

Published on Feb 20, 2017

Post-graduate researcher Rodrigo Guerrero and project manager Leesa Duckworth describe how the University Engagement program sponsored by the National Nuclear Security Administration kick-starts engineering careers in nuclear safeguards. Rodrigo's work on an engineering design project at Washington State University was mentored by national security researchers at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, piqued his interest in nuclear safeguards, and led to his current position at PNNL.
