Prof. Massimiliano Fratoni is an Assistant Professor in the department of Nuclear Engineering at the Berkeley University of California. Prof. Fratoni's research interests are in advanced fuel cycles that maximize natural resource utilization and minimize nuclear waste enabling sustainable nuclear energy. His main focus is on the design and analysis of advanced reactors such as molten salt reactors, fast spectrum reactors, reduced-moderation boiling water reactors, and fluoride-cooled high-temperature reactors. Prof. Fratoni's group also develops computational methods to support reactor analysis, and in particular multi-physics modeling and uncertainty quantification. Additional research areas include accident tolerant fuel, nuclear fuel cycle analysis, geological repository/far-field criticality, and fusion blanket design. He has been awarded several awards viz. Directorate Award, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, Outstanding Research Mentorship Award, New Experiences for Research & Diversity in Science, University of California, Berkeley, Outstanding Student Mentorship Award, Nuclear Engineering Department, University of California, Berkeley etc. He has several publications to his credit.

Dr. Howard Hall, a nuclear chemist and expert in preventing and responding to nuclear terrorism, directs the Baker Center’s Global Security Program. Hall is also the University of Tennessee-Oak Ridge National Laboratory Governor’s Chair. Dr. Hall earned his doctorate in nuclear chemistry at the University of California, Berkeley. Before coming to UT and ORNL, Dr. Hall worked at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) as the laboratory’s division leader for radiological and nuclear countermeasures. He was also the program leader for nuclear assessments and forensics and served as the radiological detection and response program leader. While at the LLNL, Dr. Hall worked in partnership with the Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology Directorate. In addition to his role at the Baker Center, Dr. Hall also holds appointments in the UT Knoxville nuclear engineering department and the global nuclear security division at ORNL. His focus at ORNL includes ways to detect the presence of and remove from circulation illicit radioactive material and identifying better methods of responding to and recovering from nuclear incidents. His research Interests include Nuclear forensics, particularly developing faster and more reliable radioanalytical processes, and developing a better understanding of the physical, chemical, and nuclear processes underlying nuclear forensics for reducing uncertainty in the interpretation of forensic data.

Dr. Lin Shao is an Associate Professor and faculty undergraduate adviser at the Nuclear Engineering department of Texas A & M University. His research Interests include Materials Science & Nanotechnology, Radiation Effects in Nuclear & Electronic Materials, Ion Beam Analysis

Dr. Amritanshu Shukla is an Assistant Professor at Rajiv Gandhi Institute of Petroleum Technology. His research interests include theoretical nuclear physics, development and simulation of thermal energy storage materials , Physics of renewable energy systems. He is the visiting faculty at university of Rome/ Gran Sasso Lab, Rome, Italy.

Dr. Haori Yang has done his Ph.D., Nuclear Engineering and Radiological Sciences, University of Michigan at Ann Arbor, 2009. Haori Yang’s research interests include non-destructive interrogation techniques, development of innovative radiation sensors, and general applications of nuclear engineering. He is developing an interrogation technique based on photon-induced fission to measure plutonium content in spent nuclear fuel. In addition, Yang is investigating low-cost, high-performance radiation detection with nanostructured radiation sensors and spintronics devices as alternatives to traditional detectors. The revolutionary improvement of radiation detection has significant impact in areas beyond nuclear material detection, including medical imaging, high-energy physics, and nondestructive testing. Prior to his appointment at Oregon State, Yang was a research scientist at Canberra Industries where he was co-inventor of an innovative neutron sensor based on LiI scintillator and Si diodes.
