Research Description

I am working toward my Ph.D. degree in Nuclear Engineering. My research focus is on:

  • Advanced reactor design and thermo-fluid analysis.
  • Integrated dynamic probabilistic risk assessment for nuclear power plants.


Rawan Mustafa has a master’s degree in nuclear materials from INPG – Grenoble University in France, and a bachelor’s degree in Nuclear Engineering from Jordan University for Science and Technology in Jordan. Rawan had been working at Jordan Atomic Energy Commission since June 2016, as a Nuclear Safety Engineer. As a part of the nuclear safety team she participated in conducting technical evaluation related to safety of NPPs established at all stages (site selection, EIA, design, etc.), analyzing and evaluating the performance of safety systems in the event of nuclear accidents at the nuclear plant. She is fluent in Arabic and English.

Rawan interned at Innovative Systems Software (ISS). Making technical contributions to the RELAP/SCDAPSIM reassessment activities and helped mentor and train new interns from Japan and Poland and performed the first integrated uncertainty analysis of one of the KIT (Karlsruhe Institute of Technology) historic CORA integral bundle heating and melting experiments, CORA-18, using RELAP/SCDAPSIM MOD3.4 with IUA (integrated uncertainty analysis).
