Kyle is currently a Ph.D. student who joined the group in September 2010 while pursuing his master’s degree. Kyle’s current research efforts are focused on the development of image reconstruction methods for a dual-particle imaging system. He is also working on developing software to help improve the accuracy of charge-integration pulse-shape-discrimination of neutrons and photons. In addition to his studies of radiation detection methods, Kyle has taken several courses focused on digital signal processing and plans to complete an M.S.E in Electrical Engineering: Systems in May 2014.

Kyle spent the summer of 2010 working on the development of the state-of-the-art Monte Carlo transport theory code, MC21, at Knolls Atomic Power Laboratory. During the summer of 2009, he spent time at Brookhaven National Laboratory analyzing the correlation between materials defects and detector performance for bar-geometry CdZnTe detector crystals.
