in a variety of materials - from metals to polymers to a variety of biological substances," said Barclay G. Jones, head of the department of nuclear engineering. "His computational studies of neutron tomography and neutron capture therapy are at the forefront of these exciting diagnostic and therapeutic procedures. With the availability of neutrons from the TRIGA nuclear reactor in the department, he is in a good position to introduce and to expand the use of neutrons into these areas of research." Research: physical, medical and biological applications of radiation and isotopes. Education: BS (physics), Southwest Normal University; MS (electrical engineering), Northwest Institute of Telecommunications Engineering/China Research Institute of Radiowave Propagation; PhD (nuclear engineering), Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
