Mark C. Sanders holds an advance degree in international nuclear law and is the lead author of the comprehensive journal article on the nuclear waste management dilemma (Progress in Nuclear Energy 90 (2016) 69-97). He is also a member of the International Nuclear Law Association (INLA) and the nuclear waste management-working group.
Mr. Sanders is a managing member of the nuclear engineering firm Nuclear Fuel Analysis Services, L.L.C. Mr. Sanders attended the Dickson Poon School of Law at King's College in London (England), where he received first-class honors. He has also obtained an advanced law degree, with a focus on International Nuclear law, from the University of Montpellier, France, graduating with honors. Mr. Sanders is active in the International Nuclear Law Association, where he is a member of the International Trade and New Build and the Radiological Protection working groups. In addition, Mr. Sanders along with his spouse, Dr. Charlotta Sanders, are emerging as subject matter experts of nuclear waste management strategies and laws among the major nuclear power producing nation states.

Sanders, Charlotta E.
Dr. Charlotta E. Sanders is an Associate Research professor at the University of Nevada, LA, and consulting nuclear engineer with 20 years' experience in the nuclear industry. She worked on the proposed Yucca Mountain geologic repository in the USA, and is therefore well versed on the technical application of nuclear waste management and transportation. Dr. Sanders is the author of over 40 articles.
Dr. Sanders is an Associate Research Professor of Nuclear Engineering and the Technical Director of the Nuclear Safety Engineering Program at University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) and the President and Managing Partner/Owner of the nuclear consulting company Nuclear Fuel Analysis Services, L.L.C. At UNLV, she teaches graduate level courses in Nuclear Engineering and leads research projects in radiation transport and criticality safety analysis. Dr. Sanders also serves as a permanent member of the Criticality Safety Review Committee for National Security Technologies in Las Vegas, Nevada. Her previous consulting activities consist of providing technical support of criticality safety and radiation protection/shielding design work at URENCO USA (National Enrichment Facility), reviewing license activities on behalf of Entergy for spent fuel pool criticality safety analysis applications, as well as led authoring of the industry guidance submitted to the NRC on Criticality Safety Analysis spearheaded by the Nuclear Energy Institute.
