MTV Hosts 2024 Interactive Graduate School Experience at U-M

The Consortium for Monitoring, Technology, and Verification (MTV) held an Interactive Graduate School Experience on June 10-13, 2024, in Ann Arbor, MI. This year we welcomed nine undergraduate and master’s students with an interest in graduate school to U-M’s campus. The students joined from Fisk University, the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, the University of Michigan, and the University of New Mexico. 

These students learned about Ph.D. research and graduate school day-to-day expectations by participating in roundtable discussions with current graduate students, networking events with faculty and graduate students, and daily hands-on laboratory experiments and demonstrations. 

MTV U-M Laboratories that participated in the experience included:

  • Detection for Nuclear Nonproliferation Group, Prof. Sara Pozzi
  • Neutron Science Laboratory, Prof. Igor Jovanovic
  • Position-Sensing Semiconductor Radiation Detector Laboratory, Prof. Zhong He
  • Radiation Detection and Measurement Group, Prof. David Wehe
  • Radiological Health Engineering Laboratory, Prof. Kimberlee Kearfott
