  • How reducing computational uncertainty allows design closer to material capability

  • Time-dependent changes to chemical structures

  • How predictions and data encourage the move away from light water reactors

  • The implications of pyro-processing 

  • The Generation 4 Initiative and the future of nuclear reactors

  • How to economically analyze technology options 

  • The importance of having a diverse system of commercially-pursued technology

  • Addressing the challenge of bringing new technologies to the market
