This is my personal nuclear engineering website for students and others interested in Nuclear Engineering, built when I was Professor in the Department of Engineering Physics, McMaster University. See also the official departmental page on Nuclear Engineering. I am retired now but still maintain the site. Suggestions and comments are welcome. Enjoy. Have a quick look around to get a sense of the layout of this web site. It covers my research, teaching, links to other nuclear related sites, a help page, a search engine, etc.

Full contact information can be found at the official department web site. Because of this web site and my other work-related web sites, I receive far more email than I can answer. I don't mean to be snooty, but the easier you make your email for me to read, the more likely it will be that I can find the time and energy to respond. Please refer to for suggested email style.
