Dr. Stefanova

Prof. Carlos Handy and Dr. Elena Stefanova from the Physics Department at TSU received $200,000 grant from the Nuclear Regulatory Commission for developing a new curricula in Nuclear Environmental Protection. The Professional Bachelor Program in Environmental Health Physics (Radiation Physics) will be unique for the greater Houston region. Except for Medical Health Physics, there are no other Nuclear related educational opportunities in the region. The core learning facility will be a Basic Nuclear Physics Laboratory, which will be built by Dr. Stefanova, PhD in Nuclear Structure Physics. Since most of the courses will be unique for Houston, a certification program for both TSU students and other professionals will be provided.
