National Security and Nuclear Materials: Using Forensic Science in a Nuclear Age

September 22, 2014

When asked about the role of forensics in society, people might point to TV shows like the CSI series and its offshoots as examples of the type of information that forensics can uncover. At its core forensics takes the adage, “You can’t judge a book by its cover” literally and focuses on understanding materials, processes, and reactions. While the actors in the series usually find their answers within an hour, researchers like Antonio Simonetti, associate professor of civil and environmental engineering and earth sciences, and his team are working at a different pace to carefully build foundational research for the nation’s most immediate needs, as well as for its future.
