In February 1994 Alexander Roman Sich was awarded a Ph.D. in nuclear engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology on a broad reappraisal and forensic reconstruction of the so-called “Active Phase” (high-release period) of the Chornobyl Accident. Dr. Sich spent a unique one and one-half years (Nov 91 – Apr 93) living in the town of Chornobyl as the first western researcher permitted to work closely with members of the Chornobyl Complex Expedition—the small group of Russian and Ukrainian scientists studying the remains of the ill-fated Unit-4 reactor.
