Dr. Andreas Enqvist joins UF MSE as Assistant Professor in Nuclear Engineering

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. And was the recipient of the Sigvard Eklund Prize for best Nuclear PhD-thesis in Sweden 2010. He is doing research within the area of nuclear safeguards/materials control and accountability, with main focus on the detection statistics of radiation from fissile materials, and the physics behind particle-detector interactions. Recent projects focus involves collaborations with the Los Alamos Neutron Science Center (LANSCE) for measuring fission properties and characteristics of particles emitted in fission events.
