N Square

Student Researcher

Fall 2018 - Winter 2018

N square is a think tank tasked in creating a network of individuals passionate in the disarmament of nuclear weapons for a safer and more secure future. Through collaborating, I was able to be introduced to industry leading nuclear experts as well as bring conversation of nuclear disarmament into industries not normally associated with those objective. The goal of the collaboration was to bring nuclear detection to a more democratic position where the public has the ability to monitor nuclear radiation at an individual scale. This would provide a network of data that would amplify the awareness of the transportation of nuclear material and ultimately result in the ban and abandonment of nuclear fissile material internationally. Theoretically, If the public could be provided with reliable information about the realities of transporting fissile material, the risks involved will naturally deter the handling and accessibility of nuclear material of any kind.
