UW professor to testify about US, Japanese nuclear safety

Posted:

MADISON (WKOW) -- A Wisconsin professor of engineering physics is scheduled to testify in front of a congressional committee about the nuclear crisis at Japan's Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear plant.

Prof. Michael Corradini teachers at UW-Madison and is a member of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission's advisory committee on reactor safeguards. The House Energy and Commerce Committee has him scheduled to testify before their oversight and investigation subcommittee Wednesday morning.

Corradini plans to talk about the effects of last month's earthquake and subsequent tsunami on Japan's nuclear plants and what the American nuclear industry can learn from the disaster at Fukushima.
