Working for what's next in nuclear reactors.

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

Fall 2019 group

What we do:

  • Combine the use of advanced instrumentation techniques and data analysis to better understanding thermal-hydraulic phenomena, such as critical heat flux, post-CHF, minimum film boiling temperature, condensation, and boiling.
  • Apply statistical tools in the data analysis to quantify uncertainties.
  • 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.
