From cave art to clean water to nuclear security, UT faculty are being recognized for their teaching and research in a variety of disciplines. Seven professors have been named by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) to their 2012 class of fellows.
Howard Hall News
Faculty, staff, students, and alumni are sharing the big ideas that make a difference in their world. Howard Hall, a Governor’s Chair professor of nuclear security, has the big idea to take UT’s capabilities and apply them to the challenge of global nuclear security.
Speculation over the nuclear ambitions of countries like Iran and North Korea and debate over proposed nuclear reactors in the US and abroad make it apparent that the need for nuclear security experts did not end with the Cold War. For this reason, UT Knoxville has launched the UT Institute for Nuclear Security.
Howard Hall, a professor of nuclear engineering at UT Knoxville and a UT-Oak Ridge National Laboratory Governor’s Chair, will deliver this week’s UT Science Forum lecture, “Averting Armageddon: Global Challenges in Nuclear Security.” His talk will begin at noon on Friday, March 19, in Thompson-Boling Arena Dining Room C-D.
