Viktorija holds a master’s degree in Physics (MPhys) and she recently completed an MSc in Nuclear Science and Engineering. Her thesis was focused on using numerical simulations to test new detection algorithms for muon scattering tomography. This technology has potential applications for nuclear waste scanning and monitoring.
Viktorija is interested in nuclear development, especially nuclear new build. Commenting on her new role, Viktorija said: “Since I worked on the basic safety case for the Advanced Boiling Water Reactor (ABWR) at Hitachi-GE, I have been attracted to working in nuclear plant safety and risk analysis. It made sense to join CRA and I am looking forward to further developing my technical skills and learning more about Probabilistic Safety Analysis (PSA). I am thrilled to join the highly skilled engineers and consultants and be part of such a diverse team. “
Additionally, Viktorija brings experience from a previous role with a small engineering company where she gained a good understanding of new product development management and working within the technical community. This will help her to communicate and collaborate with CRA’s clients.
For the past few years Viktorija has volunteered with the Nuclear Institute Western Branch (NIWB) supporting numerous activities and attending a number of conferences.
