The Nuclear Science and Security Consortium is proud to announce that Dr. Catherine Romano will be joining our Advisory Board.
Dr. Catherine E. Romano is a Senior R&D Scientist at Oak Ridge National Laboratory participating in a broad area of nuclear research. She received her bachelor’s degree in aerospace engineering from the University of Southern California and her Ph.D. from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Nuclear
Engineering and Science in 2009. Her more recent research includes measurements of fission yields and integral cross sections of short-lived actinides in the High Flux Isotope Reactor (HFIR), isotope production calculations, actinide isotope separations, spent fuel measurements and simulations to support safeguards, and specialized actinide experimental target production. She spent two years at NNSA, Defense Nuclear Nonproliferation R&D as a technical advisor focused on detector development and emergency response technologies. While there, she created the Nuclear Data Working Group which supports coordination and collaboration across federal offices to improve nuclear data used for nuclear nonproliferation and other applications.
Please join us in welcoming Dr. Romano to the NSSC Community!
