Jack Thompson received a Nuclear Energy University Program (NEUP) Fellowship from the US Department of Energy's Office of Nuclear Energy. Only 31 NEUP fellowships were awarded in 2012, most of which went to students at just seven universities - MIT, UC Berkeley, Georgia Tech, Ohio State, the University of Michigan, the University of Wisconsin-Madison and Texas A&M. The award, valued at $155,000 over three years, will support his research in human-robot collaboration to improve the safety of nuclear materials handling.
