Jacob Jurewicz

Jake is a Masters student at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) studying Nuclear Science and Engineering. He just completed his double bachelors at MIT (2014) in Nuclear Engineering and Physics. Jake previously held summer internships at MIT’s Plasma Science and Fusion Center (PSFC) as well as the National Fusion Facility at General Atomics as part of the National Undergraduate Fellowship Program (NUF). He also spent a summer studying and analyzing global nuclear threat issues in the intelligence community.

Jake’s current research focuses on the design, system integration, and analysis of the Offshore Floating Nuclear Plant (OFNP) with an interdisciplinary research group at MIT. A major goal of the project is to develop a nuclear plant design that is far safer, cheaper, and faster to deploy than past and current terrestrial nuclear plants. Jake was co-president of MIT's ANS chapter from 2013 to 2014 and is an active member of the MIT Energy Initiative (MITEI). He is extremely passionate about finding ways to reconcile nuclear technology to sustainably fulfill the needs of a globalized and modernizing society.
