The Reactor Physics Research Group, from the Unit of Nuclear Engineering at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, will host a special workshop on “Reactor Physics & Neutron Transport”.
The workshop will take place on Wednesday, May 16, 2018, between 9:00-16:00, in room 421, building 37.
The workshop, which is organized by Dr. Erez Gilad from the Unit of Nuclear Engineering, is appropriate for professional researchers and scientists working in the field of reactor physics and neutron transport.
The aim of the workshop is to gather a small but highly professional forum for mutual updates and discussion on recent studies and scientific activities, brainstorming and high-quality peer-review.
The honor guest of the workshop will be Barry D. Ganapol, a Professor in the Department of Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering (AME) at the University of Arizona and a Research Professor in the Department of Nuclear Engineering at the University of Tennessee. Prof. Ganapol is one of the leading scientists today engaged in radiation, and more specifically – neutron, transport theory, which is at the heart of many research activities conducted at the Reactor Physics Research Group @ UNE/BGU.
During his 45-year career, Professor Ganapol has held appointments at eleven DoE, NASA and military research laboratories and has nearly 300 publications. He is Fellow of the American Nuclear Society and recipient of the Gerald C. Pomraning Award from the Mathematics and Computation Division of the American Nuclear Society for his outstanding contributions to transport theory. In 2006, Professor Ganapol received the Da Vinci Award for excellence in overall scholarship, teaching and service from the College of Engineering at the University of Arizona.
