Biography

Andrew Panter is a sophomore studying Nuclear Engineering and Radiological Sciences at the University of Michigan. He started working in the Detection for Nuclear nonproliferation Lab, headed by Professor Sara Pozzi, in May 2020 as part of the Summer Undergraduate Research in Engineering program. He is continuing his undergraduate research with DNNG through the MTV Undergraduate Fellowship program. His work focuses on neutron detection techniques in photon active interrogation scenarios to prevent illicit transportation of SNM. He has conducted research on neutron activation analysis to provide benchmark neutron fluxes from SNM targets and is currently constructing shielded cargo setups to test the practical sensitivity of the DNNG-developed particle classification ANN system.
