PhD Innovation Program candidate Danielle Castley and her team won the Middle East’s most prestigious hard science investment competition for their radiation shielding materials company, Neutroelectric LCC. Castley and her team developed a neutron-shield material for the nuclear power industry and other applications where radiation emissions are involved.
“The competition is for graduate students. It was an intense, three-day competition, but luckily we brought home a win for Thayer,” says Castley. “My teammates are Ian McDonald, who recently graduated from Northeastern, and Jordan Landis who is currently in the MBA/MS engineering program at MIT.”
