Over the last three years, Energy Impact Center (EIC) have met with leading experts across climate and energy, mapping out challenges and opportunities to form the foundation for future work. This work features a deep dive into the challenges and opportunities within the field of nuclear energy and explores how the fundamentals of utilizing atomic energy yield orders of magnitude better performance and less waste over all alternatives. At Ep. 423, EIC conducted one-on-one interview with ETI graduate student Natalie Cannon from Georgia Institute of Technology, discussing:
- Natalie’s last minute switch from film to STEM – How she settled on nuclear engineering.
- An exploration of manufacturing techniques, finding mentors, and invaluable pieces of advice.
- Natalie’s research and a dive into neutron noise, criticality, and robots.
- Celebrating past accomplishments and looking toward what younger generations can help achieve in the future.
