Distinguished Alumnus of the Year 2014

Lawrence Johnson (BASc (BSc) '78)

 

 

After graduating from the U of L in 1978, Johnson took advantage of the growing opportunities in the nuclear industry at that time and started his career at Atomic Energy of Canada. During his time with the company, he led Canadian studies for the development of engineered barriers for nuclear waste disposal that played a central role in the Canadian Environmental Assessment and Review Process conducted from 1994-97.

 

Currently working for the National Cooperative for the Disposal of Radioactive Waste in Switzerland, Johnson coordinates planning of research on repositories for radioactive waste, manages studies on spent nuclear fuel under disposal conditions and is responsible for developing design concepts for disposal canisters.

 

He is the author of more than 120 journals, reports and conference papers and acts as a consultant to numerous international waste disposal organizations.

 

Lawrence Johnson was recognized for his outstanding professional accomplishments at the Fall 2014 convocation ceremony
