Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory
Dr. Tenzing Joshi received a BS in Nuclear Engineering from Purdue University in 2008 and a PhD in Nuclear Engineering from the University of California Berkeley in 2014. Much of his doctoral work was performed at LLNL within the Rare Event Detection group and focused on the response of liquid argon to low-energy interactions. After graduating, Tenzing joined LBNL as a postdoctoral researcher in the Nuclear Science Division’s Applied Nuclear Physics Program and joined the staff in 2017. His research now focuses on advanced analysis of radiological signals and fusion of multi-sensor data for security, safeguards, and emergency response applications.
Dr. Brian Quiter received BS, MS, and PhD degrees in Nuclear Engineering all from the University of California Berkeley, most recently in 2010. During his schooling, Brian interned at LLNL, LANL, INL and LBNL. Brian’s academic focus has always been on developing systems and methods to counter nuclear proliferation. His PhD work focused on assessing nuclear resonance fluorescence as a means of quantifying spent nuclear fuel content. After graduating he continued this work in the Physics Division of LBNL before joining the Applied Nuclear Physics Program in the LBNL Nuclear Science Division, where is is presently a Deputy Program Head. His research now focuses on developing radiation detection systems and methods for nuclear non-proliferation and nuclear emergency response situations and on making the data generated by such systems available to other researchers.
