Mitchell Awarded Nuclear Grant

Dr. Gary Mitchell, professor of physics, received an $800,000 grant from the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) to explore ways to reuse or otherwise safely dispose of waste from nuclear power plants. He will serve as lead investigator for the project, “Cross Sections, Level Densities and Strength Functions.”

The award is part of more than $20 million in NNSA grants awarded to 28 researchers from 18 states. This award was made possible through the NNSA’s Stewardship Science Academic Alliances program.
