Jesse is a DOE Fellow for the DOE-FIU Science and Technology Development Program and is working under the mentorship of Joseph Sincirope on three team based projects: Incombustible Fixatives, FX2 Advanced Fogging research and optimization, and Organic Semiconductor Thin Films. These projects serve for use in contaminated buildings at Savannah River Site. Working in conjunction with Idaho National Laboratories (INL) and Savannah River National Lab (SRNL), Jesse is testing effective options for fogging technologies that will aid in the efforts of decontamination of radioactive particles. Jesse conducts all tests at the Applied Research Centers laboratories using state-of-the-art equipment.
