baciak-photoDr. James E. Baciak (Ph.D., 2004) is a Florida Power & Light Professor and the Director of the Nuclear Engineering Program at the University of Florida. His expertise areas include detector development and radiation measurements, particularly for nuclear security and non-destructive examination (medical and industrial) applications. He has received funding from the Department of Defense, Department of Energy, Department of Homeland Security, National Nuclear Security Administration, Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Defense Threat Reduction Agency, and industry sponsors. He is also a co-developer and instructor of the Nuclear Security Summer School at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory. He is an Associate Editor for IEEE Transactions on Nuclear Science, and is the Vice-Chair/Chair-Elect for the American Nuclear Society Scholarship Policy and Coordination Committee.


Enqvist_PhotoDr. Andreas Enqvist is an assistant professor at the University of Florida Nuclear Engineering Program. Dr. Enqvist received a Master of Science in physics at Gothenburg University, Sweden. He graduated with a PhD at the Department of Nuclear Engineering at Chalmers University of Technology (Sweden) in 2010. Dr. Enqvist has worked as a postdoc and assistant research scientist from 2010 to 2013 at the department of Nuclear Engineering and Radiological Sciences at University of Michigan. He is doing research within the area of nuclear safeguards/materials control and accountability, with emphasis on the detection statistics of radiation from fissile materials, and the physics behind particle-detector interactions with focus on neutron reactions and interactions. Research funding is currently provided from NRC, NNSA & DHS.
