Japan is going through a very difficult time following the earthquake and tsunami. Thousands of people lost their lives, millions are affected and enormous values very wiped out. The entire nation is now struggling to recover. The events affecting the Nuclear Power Plants are still unfolding, with many people making their efforts to bring the situation under control.
Our Manager in Japan, Steven “Woody” Epstein has, from the first day of this catastrophic event, been deeply involved in following the situation and helping in all ways he could. For his involvement and deep human engagement, he has been named by the Tokyo Institute of Technology a Distinguished Visiting Scientist for Nuclear Risk for the year April 6, 2011 until April 2012.
We are very proud of this announcement and congratulate Woody!
