Dr. Tsvetkov is an Associate Professor in the Department of Nuclear Engineering, Texas A&M University. He has Ph.D. in Nuclear Engineering from Texas A&M University and M.S. in Nuclear Engineering from Moscow State Engineering Physics Institute (TU), Russia. His research program is focused on novel energy systems meeting global growing needs in sustainable resources. System design and optimization methods for complex engineered systems enable development of advanced sustainable nuclear energy technologies towards \"environmentally benign\" system design and deployment. The integrated systems approach of Dr. Tsvetkov’s research program makes it possible to optimize choices for the system. Dr. Tsvetkov is a member of ANS, ASME, ASEE, Alpha Nu Sigma and Phi Kappa Phi. Dr. Tsvetkov and his students published over 340 papers in peer reviewed journals, conference proceedings, technical reports, books.
