Four U-M engineering students placed in the 2012 Fuel Cycle Innovations Research program of the U.S. Department of Energy. Mark Norsworthy, a PhD student in the department of Nuclear Engineering and Radiological Sciences (NERS), won first prize in the category for keeping track of radioactive materials. Jason von Ehr, also from NERS, is one of five winners in the undergraduate competition for his studies of how best to store radioactive waste. Tyler Moss, a PhD student in Materials Sciences, placed second in the category focused on improving materials for radioactive environments and Randolf Schiffer, now a Masters student in electrical engineering, is another undergraduate winner for his work in acquiring radiation data.
