Graduating student’s career goal is safe, abundant nuclear energy

For the past two years, Iman Stephenson, a nuclear engineering student earning her bachelor’s degree this spring, has investigated how materials respond to the high temperatures (500-1000 C) specified for next-generation nuclear reactors. She says this research experience has been invaluable.

“I learned what it means to be in the nuclear engineering field from working with graduate students,” she said. “There are a lot more opportunities than I realized.”
