Titans Of Nuclear | Interviewing World Experts on Nuclear Energy

Feb 7, 2018

In this episode we interview Rachel Slaybaugh, who, before we were introduced, on three separate occasions was recommended as a must have on this program. She’s a professor at UC Berkeley, founder of the Nuclear boot camp which we’ll discuss shortly, and newest program director at ARPA-E. Today we discuss:

- Rachel’s introduction to nuclear science and technical expertise
- The genesis of the world’s first nuclear startup accelerator
- The need to use computation thoughtfully to replace or supplement experiments
- Her recent appointment as an Arpa-E program director
and it’s focus on supporting enabling technologies such as robotics, sophisticated sensing, model-based fault detection, and secure networks
