K-State engineering faculty member to present at American Nuclear Society annual meeting
Amir Bahadori, Steve Hsu Keystone research scholar and associate professor in the Alan Levin Department of Mechanical and Nuclear Engineering, will be a panelist for the president's special session at the 2022 American Nuclear Society annual meeting. The session, "Nuclear Grand Challenges: Moving the Needle," is organized by American Nuclear Society President Steven Nesbit, founder of LMNT Consulting, and will be moderated by Catherine Prat, senior engineer from Westinghouse Electric Company.
The session is scheduled for Tuesday, June 14, in Anaheim, California.
In 2017, the American Nuclear Society announced its Nuclear Grand Challenges project. These nine challenges, put forth by the members and technical divisions of the society, identify cross-cutting technical issues to be resolved by 2030 to help address the economic, sociological or political concerns facing nuclear energy. The distinguished panel will explore how students, as well as technical and industry leaders impact progress on the grand challenges facing nuclear energy.
