Bio

Dr. John C. Luxat is the Senior NSERC/UNENE Industrial Research Chair in Nuclear Safety Analysis, Department of Engineering Physics, McMaster University.

Dr. Luxat is a leading researcher in the field of nuclear science, with expertise in severe accident analysis and in experimental testing and analytical modeling of nuclear thermal hydraulics, subjects in which he is widely published.

He is a world-renowned expert with an established record of key technical contributions in the modeling and analysis of systems, components and physical processes in nuclear power plant with a focus on predicting consequences of severe accident scenarios. He is also developing alternative nuclear power plant risk analysis approaches that address severe accidents induced by extreme natural hazards.
