Marie Bolt

Marie Bolt is currently pursuing a B.S. in Nuclear Engineering at Texas A&M University and minoring in Russian and mathematics. Her current research interests are in the materials science aspect of nuclear engineering, particularly in advanced materials for molten salt reactors. Marie is contracted with the U.S. Navy and will serve seven years as a nuclear propulsion engineer following her graduation from Texas A&M in 2021. After leaving active duty, she plans to complete her education by earning an M.S. in Nuclear Nonproliferation and a Ph.D. in Materials Science so she may one day work in R&D for the U.S. Department of Defense.

Marie is an active member of both the American Nuclear Society (ANS), the Institute of Nuclear Materials Management (INMM), and the 2019 TNESD, which is the Texan version of NESD. In her free time, Marie likes to experiment with cookie recipes, watch Criminal Minds, and practice her Russian on her very fat cat, Ricky
