NE Colloquium: Karen Miller
Title: "Career Paths in Nuclear Engineering: Supporting the Global Nonproliferation Regime."
The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) plays a fundamental role in preventing the spread of nuclear weapons. The IAEA Safeguards Department monitors nuclear material and facilities around the world to provide credible assurances that nuclear technology is used for peaceful purposes only. Nuclear engineers play an essential role in this important mission. This talk will give an overview of one nuclear engineer’s work in the field—from scientific research and development aimed at advancing verification technologies for international safeguards to serving as a technical advisor within the State Department’s Bureau of International Security and Nonproliferation—to give students a feel for the range of exciting career opportunities for nuclear engineers in supporting the global nonproliferation regime.
Karen Miller is a nuclear nonproliferation expert at Los Alamos National Laboratory. She recently completed a two-year assignment at the US Department of State. Prior to that assignment, Miller spent over a decade with the Safeguards Group at Los Alamos. She is also the US member of the IAEA Director General’s Standing Advisory Group on Safeguards Implementation. Miller has a BS and PhD in nuclear engineering from Texas A&M University.
