Oregon State University’s “Engineering Out Loud” podcast tackles nuclear nonproliferation, discussing work funded through the $25 million Consortium for Verification Technology. Sara Pozzi, a professor of nuclear engineering and radiological sciences and leader of that consortium, was interviewed about methods and technologies used to make sure that nuclear material earmarked for energy isn’t going missing, the global network that can identify secret nuclear tests and the role of universities in preventing the spread of nuclear weapons.
