Dr. Kampanart Silva graduated in 2006 with a B.E. in environmental and energy engineering from the University of Tokyo. He received M.E. and Ph.D. from the same university in nuclear engineering and management in 2012 and 2015, respectively. His dissertation was on “Severe Accident Consequence Index and Its Applications” which revealed various consequences of a severe accident in nuclear power plants based on the situation after the Fukushima accident in 2011. It resulted in series of recommendations for preventive, mitigation and recovery strategies or regulations useful for management of man-made disasters. Dr. Silva started his work as a nuclear scientist at Thailand Institute of Nuclear Technology in 2012. His research focuses on assessment of severe accidents in a nuclear power plant, in particular the consequence assessment of an accidental release from a nuclear power plant accident, and the design of accident management scheme, and emergency preparedness and response strategy. He published articles in several well-known scientific journals, such as Reliability Engineering and System Safety, Journal of Nuclear Science and Technology, and Nuclear Engineering and Design. He is also a member of the Working Group for the Establishment of the Thai New Nuclear Research Reactor. He is one of the forming members of the ASEAN Network on Nuclear Power Safety Research (ASEAN NPSR), and the current representative of Thailand to the network. He was a committee member of Nuclear Society of Thailand (NST) during 2015-2017, and is now an executive committee member of the JSPS Alumni Association of Thailand. He was also a member of the Local Organizing Committee of the 8th International Conference of Young Scientists and Global Young Academy (GYA) Annual General Meeting 2018.
