Former student appointed as youngest ever nuclear safeguards inspector
Dhruv Keshav (Physics, 2007) was one of six people from around the world selected by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to participate in the 2016 Safeguards Traineeship Programme in Europe. The IAEA, the world’s ‘nuclear watchdog’, is tasked with preventing the spread of nuclear weapons. The objectives of this intensive 10 month programme were to broaden the participant’s knowledge about the application of nuclear techniques and to increase the number of qualified candidates for the position of a Nuclear Safeguards Inspector at the IAEA.
The College congratulates Dhruv who has now been informed that he was selected to join their globally recruited staff compliment of around 300 nuclear safeguards inspectors based in Vienna, at the IAEA headquarters. At 27, Dhruv is the youngest Safeguards Inspector ever appointed by the IAEA.
