Accelerator Scientist Joins MSU
His research combines materials science, accelerator technology, and microscopy. Specifically, his focuses on novel field- and photo-emitter materials and designs for accelerator and detector R&D; specialty and commodity materials for energy and electronics; transmission and scanning electron microscopy, including time-resolved methods, for materials science and electronics; analytical chemistry and applied surface science.
Prior to joining MSU, he worked at an accelerator R&D company called Euclid TechLabs in collaboration with the High Energy Physics and Materials Science Divisions and the Center for Nanoscale Materials, where he was a visiting scientist. His work at Euclid TechLabs was focused on diamond-based electron sources for linear accelerators and novel time-resolved microscopy concepts.
