MOHAGHEGH SERVES AS CHIEF SCIENTIFIC INVESTIGATOR IN INTERNATIONAL ATOMIC ENERGY AGENCY COORDINATED RESEARCH

Mohaghegh is Chief Scientific Investigator and a representative of the United States in the coordinated research project, “Methodology for Assessing Pipe Failure Rates in Advanced Water Cooled Reactors.” The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), which assists research for peaceful uses of nuclear energy and the development of practical applications throughout the world, is sponsoring the […]

Mohaghegh Awarded DOE NEUP Grant to Investigate Systematic Enterprise Risk Management

Read Original Article HERE Envision a future in which nuclear power companies use intelligent decision-making support systems to estimate scenarios of system failure or revenue loss. Managing physical and social failure mechanisms, these systems would provide key importance measures on how to mitigate potential undesirable consequences. In such a future, the nuclear industry could enter […]

Dr. George Apostolakis on Risk-Informed Regulatory Decision-Making: March 7th at UIUC

Probabilistic Risk Assessment (PRA) is a key pillar in the Risk-Informed Regulatory Decision-Making framework of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC). A growing number of other U.S. government agencies are evaluating the use of PRA for decision making and policy setting. Dr. George Apostolakis, former Commissioner of the NRC has had a distinguished career as a […]
