Short Bio:

Tunc Aldemir received his PhD in nuclear engineering from the University of Illinois and is a Professor of Mechanical and Nuclear Engineering at The Ohio State University. His broad area of specialization is nuclear reactor safety, with emphasis on reliability and probabilistic risk assessment (PRA). His research in PRA focuses on systems which may be difficult to model using conventional techniques, such as those with significant hardware/software/human/process interactions, passive components and/or relying on natural phenomena for safety. He has published more than 250 refereed articles on various deterministic and probabilistic aspects of nuclear reactor safety. His research efforts have been funded by the U.S. National Science Foundation, U.S. Department of Energy, U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Idaho National Laboratory, Sandia National Laboratories, and National Aeronautics and Space Administration. Professor Aldemir has also served as an International Atomic Energy Agency expert to various countries on research reactor safety. He is a Fellow of the American Nuclear Society and on the editorial board of Reliability Engineering and System Safety.
