Margaret Gilroy

Margaret is reporting to her submarine, the USS Michigan (SSGN-727) very soon for her first deployment.  The Michigan is an Ohio-class, nuclear powered, guided missile submarine, and it is the first US submarine to have both officer and enlisted women serving on board!


Guanze He


Guanze He is currently in his first year of a DPhil course in Materials in Department of Materials, Oxford University.  His research is mainly about the microstructuralanalysis of corrosion and irradiation damage of cladding zirconium alloys, which is still quite nuclear related.  Guanze stated "The lectures I took at Cambridge gave me a wide scope of view of the nuclear industry, which I find helpful during my current research."


Samuel Wu is currently doing an internship in Nuclear Engineering Department, International Atomic Energy Agency, Vienna.  His section is working on six main areas, namely: workforce planning; nuSam2clear training and SAT; nuclear leadership; stakeholder involvement; management system and quality assurance. "Right now I am in charge of the Management System SharePoint site and leading the project of developing the new Digital Hub and helping to organise an agency international conference in Korea next year." confirmed Samuel.


Since the end of the NE MPhil Course Kathleen Schaidle (née Mullen) first moved to Charleston, SC, where she completed Naval Nuclear Power School and follow on training at the Nuclear Power Training Unit.  She also graduated from the Submarine Officer Basic Course in Groton, CT (this is the required training pipeline for U.S. Submarine Officers).  Upon completion of training Kathleen received orders to the USS TEXAS (SSN 775), a Virginia Class attack submarine homeported in Pearl Harbor, HI.  She moved to Hawaii in the early Summer of 2017.
