Who We Are
Students. Problem solvers. Innovators. Future leaders.
Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute is a well-respected and professional establishment that believes in holistic learning, in-depth research, and hands-on teaching. Students are encouraged to take an active role in their education and strive to achieve all that they can. We, the members of the RPI American Nuclear Society, hope to impart onto students the networking and professional skills needed to make connections in the real world. Whether students seek a job in industry, research, or some other division of the nuclear field, we aspire to provide students the doors to those opportunities. However, it is up to them to step through it.

RPI ANS recognizes the profound importance of nuclear science and technology in affecting the quality of life throughout the world. We strive on improving the understanding of nuclear science and technology anywhere and everywhere. Luckily, some of RPI's brightest and most enthusiastic nuclear minds are up to the challenge. We are always working behind the scenes to ensure each member gets the most out of their time as a student of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.
Kyle is a member of the class of 2020 at RPI, pursuing a dual major in nuclear engineering and applied physics. Prior to becoming President of the section, Kyle served as the vice president of the section. He has done undergraduate research with Dr. Emily Liu and interned in the Sandia National Labs Criticality Safety Program. l In the future, he plans to pursue a PhD in nuclear engineering, with a focus in either computational methods or probabilistic risk assessment.
Chase is a member of the class of 2021 at RPI, pursuing a bachelor's of science in nuclear engineering. Outside of ANS he is a volunteer at RPI's makerspace The Forge, and is also a brother of the Theta Xi fraternity. Over the summer he completed the first mandatory arch semester and was also an undergraduate researcher with Professor Liu. After completing his bachelor's degree he plans on either continuing his education in a graduate program or moving into the nuclear power generation industry.
Officer of Communication
Dante is a member of the class of 2022 at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, pursuing a bachelor's of science in nuclear engineering with a minor in physics and music. Dante is also involved as a member of Sheer Idiocy, RPI's "best-est and only-est improv team on campus"; in addition to several bands within the Rensselaer Music Association where he plays percussion. Dante decided on becoming a nuclear engineer in order to work generating power in a green, safe way for the environment. After getting his bachelor's degree Dante intends to go on to study in a graduate program with the hopes of one day working in the field of nuclear fusion power generation.
