Join us to hear Bobbi Merryman's discussion on the safety of spent nuclear fuel storage installations proposed for New Mexico and Texas. There are currently two private corporations proposing to store all spent nuclear fuel for the nations’ 99 commercial nuclear powers reactors in southeast New Mexico midway between Carlsbad and Hobbs and just east of the Texas/New Mexico border five miles from Eunice, New Mexico.
Merryman is a young nuclear engineer pursuing her PhD at the University of New Mexico. While her technical research focuses on developing new criticality safety code methods for loosely – coupled systems; she is active in nuclear energy public education and policy advocacy. She is a Co-Chair for the American Nuclear Society (ANS) retention committee, the UNM ANS Advocacy Officer, and previously served on the Board of Directors for Generation Atomic. She is currently developing a working group on Spent Nuclear Fuel options for New Mexico and the greater Southwest.
