Joseph Cummings | Technical Assistant, Reactor Operator

Joseph is a student reactor operator at the Nuclear Science Center and in addition to performing his maintenance and operational duties, he has been involved with the RO training class as the TA as well as assisting with the console electrical schematic digitalization project. Joseph is expected to finish his bachelor’s degree in physics in May 2021 and hopes to continue to work in the nuclear field after graduation. For his senior thesis, Joseph worked with Dr. Nicholas Cerruti and Hillary Bennett to write about different nuclear reactor safety systems and how they have helped shape the nuclear field into the safest power generation method that provides an effective solution to climbing carbon emissions.
