Working for what's next in nuclear reactors.

The HEATS lab is working to improve the safety features of the next generation of nuclear reactors.


What we do:

  • Develop and apply advanced instrumentation techniques and data analysis tools to better understanding thermal-hydraulic phenomena in advanced light water reactors.
  • Develop statistical analysis in the data uncertainty quantification.
  • Combine computational and experimental analysis in the learning process of new phenomena.

We believe in the value of diversity.
Freedom and equality are fundamental values of a society. In building an egalitarian society, it is essential to achieve substantive equality, which is related to social inclusion, affirmative actions, the promotion of equal opportunities and respect for differences. We believe that an inclusive university community is one that is based on diversity among people, cultures, and perspectives, valuing differences and ensuring equal opportunities.
