David Hawn

Member of the 2006 Delegation

David completed his B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from the Ohio State University in 2005. He is now pursuing a M.S. in Nuclear Engineering from OSU. David's thesis project is to build a dynamic model of a liquid fluoride breeder reactor utilizing the thorium fuel cycle. The model will be verified using historical data from several molten salt reactor experiments conducted at Oak Ridge National Lab in the 50's and 60's. This model will be used with MCNP models to iterate changes to potential molten salt breeder reactor designs. He is also the President for the ANS student section at OSU.
