My family has been directly impacted by terrorism here in the United States. This pushed me into understanding the how and why of these type of attacks. I was introduced to this threat area at a homeland security conferencei n DC, which lead to attending an IAEA event at Sandia. I was shocked to learn about the threats, probelms, and demographic issues in this space and wanted to get involved.
