Jaron Wins 2nd Place in Innovations in Fuel Cycle Research Competition

Jaron Senecal has been awarded a Second Place prize in the Innovations in Fuel Cycle Research Awards sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy, Office of Fuel Cycle Technologies. Jaron’s award is in the Open Competition in the category of Nuclear Science and Engineering. His award-winning research paper, “A Modified Tightly Coupled Method for Reactor Transient Simulations,” was presented at the Physics of Reactors (PHYSOR) Conference in May 2016.

In order to be successful and retain its leadership role in nuclear technologies, the United States must foster creativity and breakthrough achievements to develop tomorrow’s nuclear technologies. The Department of Energy has long recognized that university students are an important source of breakthrough solutions and a key component in meeting its long-term goals. The Innovations in Fuel Cycle Research Awards program was developed for this purpose.
