Three Center for Nuclear Security Science and Policy Initiatives (NSSPI) students have been selected for the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) Graduate Fellowship Program (NGFP), including RED² graduate student, Audrey Nguyen. The NGFP is administered by Pacific Northwest National Laboratory and provides students with a year-long, salaried fellowship that offers training and practical experience in nuclear security and nonproliferation.
Nguyen is a Master of Science student working with Dr. Shaheen Dewji. Her research interests include dose quantification and modeling for emergency response following radiological or nuclear detonation events. Her current project involves using Monte Carlo techniques and source term fallout modeling, in conjunction with physiological models, to quantify radiation contamination and dose from uptakes in the eye. Nguyen earned her Bachelor of Science in radiological health engineering from Texas A&M with a minor in mathematics. Congratulations Audrey!
