Prof. Sara Pozzi, MTV Consortium Director and professor in the U-M Department of Nuclear Engineering & Radiological Sciences (NERS), was recently awarded the Vincent J. DeVito Distinguished Service Award during the Institute of Nuclear Materials Management (INMM) Annual Meeting. The award is named for the Institute’s long-time Secretary.
Pozzi was recognized for her long-term and noteworthy contributions to nuclear materials measurement, monitoring and verification, training, and research in nuclear engineering and radiological sciences.
Among Pozzi’s many contributions to safeguards, she developed new techniques for neutron measurements that are being adopted by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) for nuclear safeguards applications. She is a co-developer of the MCNPX POLIMI, a Monte-Carlo code for correlation measurements, now being used in over 50 institutions worldwide.
