At Stanford, researchers are focused on key economic, environmental and national security issues surrounding nuclear energy. For example: developing statistical tools for modeling the reliability of nuclear power plants and nuclear waste repositories; managing the global expansion of nuclear power while avoiding the proliferation of nuclear weapons; monitoring the economic and environmental impact of large-scale nuclear accidents; and analyzing the feasibility of integrating small modular reactors in the energy system.
