North Carolina State University celebrated Dr. Paul Turinsky’s election into membership of the National Academy of Engineering (NAE) on November 8 with a private Chancellor’s reception and by lighting of the Belltower red in his honor. The Belltower glows red to mark NC State’s proudest occasions and achievements.
Dr. Turinsky is the former chief scientist of CASL, the Consortium for the Advanced Simulation of Light Water Reactors, one of five Energy Innovation Hubs established by the Department of Energy to apply a multidisciplinary systems approach to overcoming critical technological challenges facing the nuclear power industry.
His research includes computational reactor physics and uncertainty quantification for simulations of physical phenomena.
He was cited for the development of simulation technology to support the safe and efficient operation of nuclear reactors.
