Current Students

Mr. Andrew Panter

Andrew Panter is a junior studying Nuclear Engineering and Radiological Sciences at the University of Michigan. He began his research in May 2020 as part of the Summer Undergraduate Research in Engineering program. His work focuses on neutron detection techniques in photon active interrogation scenarios to prevent illicit transportation of SNM. He has conducted research on neutron activation analysis to provide benchmark neutron fluxes from SNM targets and is currently constructing shielded cargo setups to test the practical sensitivity of the DNNG-developed particle classification ANN system.

 

 


Past Members

Ms. Ruby Araj

Ruby Araj is an undergraduate studying Nuclear Engineering and minoring in Computer Science. She is studying the dependence of light output and pulse shape in stilbene on radiation interactions from a fission source. She started working with the group in 2017 as a SURE student with Dr. Patricia Schuster.

Mr. Dietrich Klemm

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERADietrich Klemm is a sophomore undergraduate student studying Aerospace Engineering. He started working with DNNG as a freshman through the UROP program, and is currently enrolled in an independent research class in order to continue working with the group. He assists with the optimization and development of a dual-particle imaging system.

 

 

 


Ms. Emily King

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAEmily King is a sophomore studying Nuclear Engineering. She started working with the group in 2014 as a UROP student and will continue her work on developing a better double pulse rejection technique for pulse shape discrimination purposes in the summer of 2015. She is a recipient of a CVT Undergraduate Fellowship.
