Dr. Slavica Grdanovska is an Associate Scientist at Fermilab working on proof-of-concept studies to enable applications in radiation processing that require high power beam accelerators. Dr. Grdanovska earned both her MS and PhD in nuclear engineering from the University of Maryland. Her graduate work focused on development, testing and characterization of novel sensors capable of measuring deformation of nuclear materials during nuclear reactor operations. Having completed her education and training in a radiation-related discipline, Slavica has gained experience in a wide range of research topics related to accelerated radiation assisted testing and characterization of novel material systems for various applications, radiation chemistry in extreme environments, radiation dosimetry, nuclear reactor instrumentation, and radiation polymer science. Her work has been published in the Journal of Nuclear Materials, International Journal of Radiation Biology, Radiation Physics and Chemistry and the IAEA.
