2014 Intern Spotlight: Puja Mody


Name: Puja Mody
Home Institution: American University in Washington
Major: International Studies Minor:  Chemistry
CNS Projects: Nuclear Threat Initiative,  CBW

“Since the summer undergraduate internship at CNS focuses specifically on nonproliferation, I obtained a lot of basic knowledge about the nuclear fuel cycle. Unlike school, nobody will spoon-feed knowledge into your brain. It is up to you to seek knowledge and skills by actively interacting with your superiors, co-workers, and graduate students at the CNS. You must be active and engaging rather than waiting for others to teach you what you want to learn.”
