NSSC’s Rachel Slaybaugh shares her tips on implementing version control

Posted by:

NSSC Nuclear Engineering Focus Area Lead and Professor of Nuclear Engineering at UC Berkeley, Rachel Slaybaugh, shares her tips on implementing version control, like the Git repository, to make it easier for students and scientists to keep track of their evolving scientific code. This Fall, Professor Slaybaugh will also serve as the Faculty Advisory of a DeCal, STEMing Out to Built Futures.This course will expose K-5 students in the West Oakland area to careers in STEM fields while simultaneously helping them improve scholastic achievement. This class will also give Berkeley students the opportunity to learn about STEM education techniques for young learners as well as STEM education in different cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds.

NSSC Fellow Daniel Hellfeld wins Best Poster at INMM 2015

Posted by:

Nuclear Science and Security Consortium Fellow and incoming Fall 2015 graduate student, Daniel Hellfeld, won the JD Williams Best Poster Award at this year’s Institute of Nuclear Materials Management Annual Meeting. He recently completed an M.S. in Nuclear Engineering at Texas A&M University. Daniel’s research is on the feasibility of determining the direction of nuclear reactor antineutrinos via elastic electron scattering in large Gd-doped water Cherenkov detectors. These types of detectors are currently being investigated for their potential use in far-field (10-100 km) remote monitoring of nuclear reactors. If directionality is possible, these detectors could discriminate between multiple reactors and potentially be used to search for clandestine reactors. The work is being done in collaboration with Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and the Nuclear Science and Security Consortium at the University of California, Berkeley.
