The “Ex core Microreactor Monitoring (EM 2 for Autonomous Operation” project that Prof. Di Fulvio leads is funded by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission and aims to develop new concepts of integrated microreactor monitoring that enable their unattended and reliable operation over their lifetime.
We seek motivated undergraduate students from University of Illinois-Chicago for a summer internship on this topic.
Apply online by March 1st: https://go.npre.illinois.edu/UGfellow

Congratulations to Ming Fang and Jianxin Zhou. Ming Fang is the recipient of the 2022 J. D. Williams Student Paper Award (2nd place) at the INMM meeting and Jianxin Zhou the Best Graduate Presentation (Radiation Measurements topic) at the ANS Student Conference! Different conferences, same high research quality!
Prof. Di Fulvio is excited to join the faculty of the Program in Arms Control & Domestic and International Security (ACDIS), an interdisciplinary venture at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign that facilitates objective research, academics, and outreach about international security issues within the academic and policymaking communities.
ACDIS successfully integrates insights generated by scholars from engineering, natural sciences, social sciences, and humanities to produce comprehensive analyses that do not reduce security issues to singular and simplifying explanations. International security challenges are approached as complex phenomena that can only be understood through examination of multiple causes and impacts.
Prof. Di Fulvio (NML) participates to the Annual Meeting of the EURADOS working group 9, to discuss and perform experiments to characterize secondary neutron production in emerging grid-collimated proton therapy treatments using multiple detection systems.
Many thanks to Dr. Pawel Olko, Dr. Renata Kopeć, Dr. Liliana Stolarczyk and all colleagues in the Krakow for hosting the meeting and for their hard work in preparation for the successful experiments!
