Episode 66 - How Much Exposure Comes From Being in a Nuclear Plant?
Jul 27th, 2017 by globalenergyleaders
On today’s episode, Emily Liu Associate Professor of Nuclear Engineering and Engineering Physics at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute visits The Global Energy Leaders Podcast to discuss how much exposure actually comes from Nuclear.
Dr. Liu is an Associate Professor of Nuclear Engineering and Engineering Physics in the Department of Mechanical, Aerospace, and Nuclear Engineering at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI). Dr. Liu earned PhD from Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2005 and B.S. from Peking University in 1999. She is the recipient of various honors and awards such as the Class of 1951 Outstanding Teaching Award (RPI, 2013), the School of Engineering Research Excellence Award (RPI, 2012), and the Cozzarelli Prize in Engineering and Applied Sciences from the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (2006). As a Physicist and Nuclear Engineer by training, Liu’s research is focused on solving high impact problems associated with energy and environment through fundamental investigations into the structure-function relationships of materials. For this purpose she is developing a variety of analytical, experimental, and computational tools based on neutron, X-ray, and light scattering as well as molecular dynamics (MD) and phase field simulations.
