Associate Laboratory Director of Energy and Global Security (EGS) Mark Peters was honored this week as a Fellow of the American Nuclear Society. Fellow is the highest member status presented by the society, and is granted for outstanding accomplishments in the areas of nuclear science and technology.
Peters is one of five people selected this year for Fellows status. ANS commended Peters for his leadership of “the development and implementation of a new research and development agenda for the United States’ used nuclear fuel and high-level nuclear waste program. Through his leadership, the United States maintained technical direction and capability that continues today as a revised nuclear waste policy is formulated.”
These five individuals have contributed significantly to nuclear science and engineering.
This is a prestigious achievement that highlights the professional expertise and innovation each of these individuals has exhibited throughout their careers.
