Meet the Team

 
Dr. Danielle Castley
completed her PhD in Materials Engineering at the Thayer School of Engineering at Dartmouth College in Hanover, NH.  Her research focused on neutron shielding materials in response to the commercial nuclear industry need for lightweight, high-temperature radiation shielding materials.  Danielle previously completed her Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Mechanical Engineering at Drexel University in Philadelphia, PA. 
Dr. Bill Woodward, P.E.
has over 42-years of experience in the energy sector with expertise in bringing new technologies to a commercially viable product.  After completing his Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Pennsylvania, he joined Westinghouse Electric Corp, contributing to reactor design and directing R&D as Executive Manager.  Subsequently, as Senior Vice President for Holtec International, Dr. Woodward led international market development.
Dr. Ian J. McDonald
completed his PhD in Materials Engineering at Northeastern University applying neutron and high-energy X-ray radiation characterization techniques to study complex composite material systems. Ian previously completed his Bachelor’s and Master's Degrees in Materials Engineering at Drexel University in Philadelphia, PA.
