Purdue Conference on Active Nonproliferation

Prof. Di Fulvio attends the Purdue Conference on Active Nonproliferation hosted by The Institute of Nuclear Materials Management (INMM) at Purdue University.

Her talk entitled “Bayesian Unmixing Algorithms for Identification of Gamma Sources Using Organic Scintillators” is awarded the First Place Radiation Measurements Presentation Award. We thank CRANS and INMM for the award!

Prof. Di Fulvio joins ACDIS

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.

EURADOS WG9 meeting

21 Sep 2018

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!
