Who am I?

I am a graduate from the Department of Nuclear Engineering / Engineering Physics at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in the Extreme Environments fuel and materials research group where I obtained my Master's degree in Nuclear Engineering (2013). I currently work at Battelle Energy Alliance, LLC as an Advanced Test Reactor (ATR) Reactor Engineer. I have a passion for all things nuclear, and enjoy teaching others–from boy scouts to their grandparents–about the amazing technology that already exists, and what is possible in the future.

I have experience operating UW-Madison’s 1MW TRIGA research reactor, and have worked at Argonne National Laboratory designing components for next generation fast reactors. Additionally, much of my work at UW-Madison is nuclear materials focused, so I have laboratory experience with radiation damage and corrosion.

I have written on nuclear matters for the Center for Industrial Progress and The Objective Standard, and was previously a member of Team JURBAN, competing in the Google Lunar X-Prize to land a rover on the moon. I acted as a consultant for anything nuclear-related.
