Boris V. Podobedov
I received my PhD from the Stanford University Department of Applied Physics. My thesis work was devoted to the experimental studies of the so-called “saw-tooth instability” at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC) damping rings. Since 1999, I am a staff scientist at the National Synchrotron Light Source (NSLS) at Brookhaven National Laboratory, where I contributed to numerous accelerator upgrades and provided accelerator physics support to Operations. I was heavily involved in the R&D work towards the Brookhaven future light source, NSLS-II, which we are currently commissioning. My research interests include collective effects, impedances and wakes, beam diagnostics, orbit stability and general accelerator beam dynamics.
