Adam Hoffman is an intern with the Center for Science, Technology, and Security Policy at the American Association for the Advancement of Science, where he is supporting various Center initiatives and programs. Adam has an interest in nuclear energy, nonproliferation, and security policy.
In September of 2013, Adam completed a Ph.D. in Nuclear Enginnering and Radiological Sciences at the University of Michigan. At UM, Adam developed computational methods for nuclear reactor physics as applied to nuclear safety and modeling the nuclear fuel cycle. Prior to attending UM, Adam completed the Nuclear Safety Professional Development Program (NSPDP) at the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, where he principally worked in nuclear safety. Before beginning the NSPDP, Adam completed a B.S. in Nuclear Engineering at Texas A&M University.
After completing the internship, Adam will begin the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) Graduate Program (NGP) at the U.S. Department of Energy, working in nuclear nonproliferation.
