My latest accomplishment
Published a pair of papers showing in the first that neutrino oscillation is a standard model effect if flavor can be entangled and another that big bang inflation is also a standard model effect if the initial singularity is Planck scale and that quantum transitions occur in a single Planck time.
My research areas span nuclear nonproliferation including nuclear assay and retrospective dosimetry. I also find health physics, nuclear crtiticality safety, burnup, shielding, nuclear waste disposal and novel detection methods of interest, particularly when they relate back to nonproliferation and radiation safety. From industry, I came to academia as a Certified Health Physicist and a licensed Professional Engineer (nuclear) with field experience in radiological emergency response, nuclear waste management, nuclear safety, radiation dosimetry, nuclear criticality safety, air monitoring, ALARA and shielding design.
