Nuclear Olympiad

My participation in the Nuclear Olympiad was a turning point in my life. Not only I was able to learn, research, network, in summary, and grow as a professional but I was also able to have a better understanding of our role as ambassadors of the nuclear technology that brings so many benefits for society. 

That experience gave me more visibility when speaking about nuclear to society and motivated me to pursue some passions within the nuclear sector, moving forward with the development of several projects, especially in Brazil, focused on that subject. I am very grateful for WNU and IAEA for the 2015 Nuclear Olympiad and for the opportunity to collaborate with the 2019 edition as well.
