John W.

In 2017, I jumped at the chance to take part in assembling the 9S accelerator system, and ever since I’ve been involved in ion-beam analysis techniques and accelerator based nuclear reactions. I’m currently a nuclear physics PhD candidate, and my dissertation work involves applied nuclear physics using heavy ions for medically relevant isotope production. Beyond the nuclear science lab, I have interests in gardening, cast-iron cooking, and sourdough baking. I have post-graduate interests in commercialization of nuclear techniques and nuclear forensics research at a national lab.
