Jeremy is a senior studying NPRE in the Plasma Concentration. He decided to study nuclear engineering because of his longstanding interest in fusion energy. He is active in undergraduate research and in his free time enjoys skiing and totally not nerdy video games such as Kerbal Space Program.
Gregory is completing his final undergraduate semester studying physics and nuclear, plasma, and radiological engineering (NPRE). He will be remaining at UIUC for my masters and PhD in NPRE. He served as secretary of ANS last year. If you catch him between lab groups, good fo you.
Alec Kleczkowski is a senior majoring in Nuclear, Plasma, and Radiological Engineering with a concentration in Power, Safety, and the Environment. Alec is also a part of the Illini Solar Car team on campus and has represented them in the Student Sustainability Leadership Committee. Alec’s role as Internal Vice President includes maintaining relationships with Engineering Council, Co-Chairing the annual Engineering Open House demonstration, and generally making the UIUC Chapter better!
Kelsey Luo is a current sophomore in the Radiological Concentration track in NPRE. She is also planning on getting a minor in Mathematics and a certificate in Arms Control and Domestic and International Security. She started serving as Treasurer during the Spring 2017 semester and really enjoys contributing to UIUC's ANS chapter. When she’s not in class, you can find her on campus dodging the squirrels.
Jacob is a junior pursuing the Power, Safety, and the Environment track as well as a minor in Mathematics. His research interests lie in a variety of topics but he hopes to apply research to power generation technology. Jacob enjoys a number of hobbies outside of school such as rollerblading, hiking, and riding his bike. He looks forward to helping ANS this year and wants to find new ways for our chapter to be successful. If you can’t find Jacob in the nuclear building, he’s probably at the engineering library.
Jazz is a senior in NPRE with a concentration in Radiology. His role is social chair for the American Nuclear Society UIUC chapter. He schedules events that allow everyone to have a good time! Oh, yeah, baby!
Demetrio chose to study nuclear engineering because he comes from a small small town and nuclear energy was interesting to him. When he came here to U of I he did not realize that there were more fields other than just nuclear power and that's how he ended up choosing the Radiological track in NPRE. Demetrio currently acts as the public relations chair for the ANS UIUC student chapter, and his main job involves coordinating events and company sessions along with procuring members on behalf of ANS.
Isabella is a sophomore in nuclear, plasma, and radiological engineering. She is considering the Plasma and Fusion Science track within the department but is pursuing a minor in Physics. She is excited to be able to reach out to the community and to younger people about the opportunities that nuclear energy and nuclear engineering provide. Isabella volunteers at the Center for Plasma-Material Interactions. If she cannot be found in the nuclear engineering building, she is probably napping somewhere.
Aristidis ( Aries ) Loumis is a senior in Nuclear, Plasma & Radiological Engineering, with an emphasis in Power Safety and the Environment. His main academic interests are in security, non-proliferation, fuel cycle, innovation in nuclear science, entrepreneurship, energy policy and environmental sustainability. This is his second year with an ANS Leadership position, coming from his last position as secretary. His goals as chapter president are to improve local and national advocacy of progressive energy policies revolving, enhance communication between the department of Nuclear, Plasma & Radiological Engineering and provide academic and professional development to our members.
Jeremy Mettler is a junior in Nuclear, Plasma and Radiological Engineering. Outside of classes he enjoys spending time researching at the Center for Plasma Material Interactions on a variety of projects. His main goal in the society is to provide everyone with opportunities to attend as many fun and interesting trips as possible.
Shanna Bobbins is graduating from the Nuclear, Plasma, and Radiological Engineering Department here at UIUC in December and she hopes to start a career in nuclear power generation. Through her role as Internal Vice President, Shanna works to bring advocacy and educational opportunities to ANS members as well as encourage students to participate in events run by Engineering Council or the College of Engineering. Aside from her classes, Shanna spends her time working at a research lab, volunteering for other events on campus, and skiing.
Siobhan Fox is a sophomore in Nuclear, Plasma, and Radiological Engineering. Her primary academic focus is International nuclear policy. Through serving as treasurer, she hopes to ensure all members are provided with the resources needed to gain the most out of the ANS activities they participate in.
Gregory Romanchek is a senior double majoring in Physics and NPRE. He conducts research through the physics department focusing on the super-resolution imaging and computational analysis of postsynaptic neurotransmitter receptors. Gregory hopes to lend his talents towards maintaining and improving the general organization and communication of ANS in order to give back to the welcoming and supportive community. He enjoys listening to and playing melodic metal. He has hopes to enter a doctorate program in Medical Physics.
Erik Medhurst is a senior in Nuclear, Plasma, and Radiological Engineering with a concentration in Radiological Engineering. When he’s not in class or researching big data radiation detection applications, you can find him on the handball courts or playing on a tenor pan steel drum. As a fervent advocate of nuclear energy, you will find your social chair out and about spreading information hotter than the core of a PWR reactor. Find him for a hearty laugh at happy hour on Fridays.
Public relations representative Stefan “Diesel Deeks” Tosic is often said to be the embodiment of the elements of nuclear fission. His powerful reactions result in the release of tremendous amounts of energy that illuminate the public image of the American Nuclear Society. He can generate up to 3000 megawatts of thermal power with his dangerously hot references to 80’s culture, and he is also capable of emitting intense beams of radiation from atop his bicycle seat to eliminate foes while remaining mobile. He aspires to educate the public on the nuclear industry and to find his dad.
Alyssa Hayes is a sophomore in Nuclear, Plasma, and Radiological Engineering. She researches fractals and radical densities in plasmas at the Center for Plasma Material Interactions. She hopes to expand on opportunities for members to spread nuclear advocacy and educate the public.
