CVT Alumnus, Undergraduate Fellow, September 2014 - August 2017, UC Berkeley

University of Michigan



Tyler Jordan is a graduating senior at the University of Michigan studying Nuclear Engineering and Radiological Sciences with a Minor in Mathematics. Tyler began working with Professor Sara Pozzi's Detection for Nuclear Nonproliferation Group through an independent study during his sophomore year, and he has continued with the group ever since. Over this time, Tyler has contributed to the development of a fast neutron multiplicity well counter, compared fission models between FREYA and MCNPX-PoliMi, and investigated the temperature dependence of organic scintillator detector response. He is currently working on a project to develop and test parameters for organic scintillator pulse-shape discrimination techniques. Upon graduation, Tyler plans on enrolling in a doctoral program in nuclear engineering with a focus in radiation detection for nuclear nonproliferation applications, after which he hopes to find a long-term position at a national lab.
