Ben Pharn

I am a first year Master’s student here at Oregon State University, having completed my undergraduate degree here as well. I was born and raised in Southern California, where the majority of my family still resides.



I dream of seeing a world powered by nuclear energy. To that end, I have decided to focus on nuclear security and safeguards in order to help advance my dream

I work under Todd Palmer, and I am currently working on a project to help develop safeguards for small modular reactors for Idaho National Laboratory.
