Razieh (Rose) KarimiHaghighi from the Wren group has been awarded a Women in Nuclear Canada Pioneer Scholarship in the graduate student category. The scholarship includes a $3,000, a plaque, and conference and travel expenses to Saskatoon in Sept 26-28. Congratulations, Rose!
Rose's PhD. project involves studying the effect of gamma radiation on the corrosion behaviour of Candu steam generator materials under operating conditions. The project focuses on nickel as it is the main component of the alloy used in the steam generators of nuclear power plants, and understanding its fundamental corrosion behaviour is critical for prediction of alloy longevity.
