CPI Intern of the Month

Maira Orozco, a senior in the Nuclear Engineering program, has been selected at the September 2017 CPI Intern of the Month. Orozco held an internship at Idaho National Laboratories over the summer in which she designed and developed new concepts for an upgrade to radiological waste control rooms. The objective of the project was to determine which interface improved/assisted operator performance, and although the project is still underway, the results look promising.

Katya Le Blanc, Human Factors Scientist at INL and Orozco's supervisor, stated, "Maira's work here has been instrumental in the success of preparation for an experimental study and workshop looking at design of the interface between operators and the control system of nuclear power plant systems."

Orozco's contribution to the project was so great that INL has confirmed that she will continue into a second internship position commencing in the fall semester. A Rexburg native, Orozco plans to graduate from ISU in December 2018 and hopes to work for INL after graduation.

Amazing work, Maira!
