Even these, however, he characterizes as "near sightings" (of Black Swans) "because of their significant impact on the field" while acknowledging that "few associate the work with me." in the other hand, he states that for both nuclear pumped lasers and advanced fuel fusion
(not yet Black Swans) "I am recognized as one of the fathers of the field."
Other topics include nuclear dynamics modeling by recurrent neural networks, best estimate computational tools for safety analysis, advanced fuel fusion
reactors, equilibrium phases in zirconium alloys, and IAEA safeguards to halt the spread of nuclear weapons.
He is recognized internationally for his research on innovative fusion plasma confinement concepts and studies of advanced fuel fusion
. He is a Fellow of the American Physical Society, American Nuclear Society, and IEEE.
