Dr. Kyle Cameron Hartig and 5 other UF Faculty will take the lead in a -16-university team of 31 scientists and engineers-  project, funded by the US Department of Energy’s National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA), that will aim to develop new techniques and the training of future nuclear forensics specialists in identifying and tracking nuclear materials to support global safety and national security.

Dr, Hartig’s research will focus on Prompt effects & Measurements and will seek to understand signals given off following nuclear detonation.
