overview

Dr. Poston's research encompasses a broad range of issues associated primarily with existing nuclear-electric generating stations. These include: 1) safe storage of used nuclear fuel from nuclear-electric-generating stations; 2) radiation safety and human performance aspects of operating nuclear-electric stations safely, efficiently, and without unnecessary radiation exposures of the workers or releases of radioactivity to the environment around these facilities; and 3) safety and security of these facilities as well as response to emergency situations including terrorist acts involving radiation and radioactivity.
