Jovica R Riznic is a Technical Specialist at the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC), working on regulatory analysis and assessment of technical issues with operating nuclear power plants (NPP). He served CNSC on various position, including nuclear safety analysis and managing the CNSC Research and Support Program. He is an adjunct professor at the University of Waterloo and Mc Master University, and a faculty at Algonquin College in Ottawa in the School of Business and the Centre for Continuing and Online Learning teaching courses within the Project Management Certificate Program. Additionally, he taught courses in thermal and fluid sciences (Thermodynamics, Fluid Mechanics) at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. During his career spanning over thirty years, Dr Riznic besides being a highly respected professional and recognized expert in nuclear regulatory issues, has engaged in solving technically important issues at nuclear power plants. He conducted research at Argonne National Laboratory, Purdue University and University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee in the areas of heat and mass transfer, nuclear reactor thermal hydraulics, multi-phase thermo-fluid systems, nuclear reactor safety and reliability, and engineering management. Dr. Riznic is currently coordinating a team providing Canadian contribution to a number of international research projects with US Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), Nuclear Energy Agency of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD NEA) and International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to address issues of material degradation and safe operation of piping components and steam generators of CANDU and Light Water Reactors.
