Andrew Rogers named first FRIB Visiting Scholar for Experimental Science

Andrew Rogers from the University of Massachusetts Lowell has been named the first Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB) Visiting Scholar for Experimental Science. FRIB has initiated the FRIB Visiting Scholar Program for Experimental Science to encourage and help junior/non-tenured faculty members establish research programs at FRIB.

Andrew is an assistant professor in the Department of Physics and Applied Physics at the University of Massachusetts Lowell. Since obtaining his PhD in physics in 2009 from Michigan State University, followed by postdoctoral positions at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and Argonne National Laboratory, Andrew has been an active researcher at the National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory.

The award supports short-term stays at FRIB with a stipend of $5,000 intended for travel and local expenses. Andrew will spend his time at MSU preparing for an experiment to explore long-lived excited states in neutron-rich nuclei, and advancing his expertise on a new digital-acquisition system.
