Professor To Lead Nuclear Monitoring Project

Posted: Updated:

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - A University of Michigan professor is leading a new $25 million project to help nations with nuclear power safeguard their materials.

The Ann Arbor-based school says Monday in a release that Sara Pozzi will direct the Center for Verification Technology.

Pozzi is an associate professor of nuclear engineering and radiological sciences.

Four other University of Michigan professors are part of the project which is funded by the National Nuclear Security Administration.

The project also seeks to better monitor nations that don't observe an international nuclear proliferation treaty.

A team from 13 universities will work with national labs to analyze nuclear nonproliferation efforts, improve technologies for monitoring weapons-grade materials and detecting secret weapon tests by monitoring seismic activity.

The team also is tasked with training the next generation of nonproliferation experts.
