Dr. Edwards is a retired professor of mathematics and science, as well as an expert advisor on nuclear issues. His ability to communicate complex concepts to the public will be on full display during his presentations on the realities of radioactive risks, specifically focusing on the risks associated with nuclear waste transportation and burial.
