    Common misconceptions for opposing nuclear energy

    Presented by: Robert Hayes

    Robert Hayes is an Associate Professor of Nuclear Engineering at North Carolina State University where he oversees the university’s Health Physics graduate certificate and minor. He currently holds a joint faculty appointment with the Savannah River National Laboratory and is an associate editor of the journal Radiation Physics and Chemistry. He is also a licensed professional engineer in Nuclear Engineering, a Certified Health Physicist through the American Board of Health Physics and a Fellow of both the Health Physics Society and the American Physical Society. He served for many years on the federal radiological emergency response teams in various capacities along with over a decade at the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant enabling the geological disposal of transuranic waste. His research focuses on novel shielding technology, radiological air monitoring along with retrospective dosimetry for nuclear safety, nonproliferation, emergency response and radiation protection applications.


    There are many narratives in common discourse opposing the use of nuclear energy for civil electricity generation. These include nuclear waste, terrorism, cancer potential, nuclear disasters, transportation accidents and nonproliferation. This presentation will try to provide a contextual comparison of the known science addressing each of these in an informative and somewhat US centric manner.

    ICRP 2023, the 7th International Symposium on the System of Radiological Protection, will be held in Tokyo, Japan. It will be hosted by National Institutes for Quantum Science and Technology (QST), in collaboration with Japanese academic societies.

    This International Commission on Radiological Protection (ICRP) Symposium will be a major milestone in the review and revision of the System of Radiological Protection. Attendees can expect world-class sessions and hospitality.

    ICRP 2023 will be held 6-9 November 2023 at the Grand Nikko Tokyo Daiba, conveniently located 20 minutes from Haneda Airport (HND) and 90 minutes from Narita Airport (NRT), and is directly accessible from Daiba Station on the Yurikamome Line.

    More information will be available in the coming months.  Questions about participation, sponsorship, and the programme can be directed to Kelsey Cloutier, Head of Stakeholder Engagement and Communications for ICRP.
