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

Andreas Enqvist, Ph.D.Andreas Enqvist, Ph.D., received a Master of Science in physics at Gothenburg University, Sweden and his doctorate in Nuclear Engineering from Chalmers University of Technology (Sweden) in 2010. Dr. Enqvist worked as a postdoc and assistant research scientist from 2010 to 2013 at the Department of Nuclear Engineering and Radiological Sciences at the University of Michigan and received the Sigvard Eklund Prize for Best Nuclear Ph.D. thesis in Sweden in 2010.

His research interests include the area of nuclear safeguards and materials control and accountability, with a main focus on the detection statistics of radiation from fissile materials and the physics behind particle-detector interactions. Recent projects focus include collaborations with the Los Alamos Neutron Science Center (LANSCE) for measuring fission properties and characteristics of particles emitted in fission events.
