Ronald Pindak’s research is in condensed matter physics with an emphasis on the use of x-ray scattering techniques to characterize bulk, surface, and interface structures as well as their kinetics and dynamical fluctuations. Pindak worked for 24 years at Bell Laboratories where he achieved the rank of Distinguished Member of the Technical Staff. He has 45 years of research experience with over 100 refereed publications covering work on both soft condensed matter (complex fluids, colloids, polymers) and hard condensed matter thin films such as found in electronic and opto-electronic devices. He has 36 years of experience using synchrotron research facilities and 17 years of experience managing synchrotron facility operations. He currently oversees a suite of state-of-the-art beamlines at NSLS-II that are optimized for coherent, micro-beam, inelastic, resonant, and small/wide angle x-ray scattering.
Dr. Meng Yue is the principle investigator of multiple projects funded by different offices in DOE. He led and is leading development of a number of grid analytical methods and tools for probabilistic contingency analysis, probabilistic sizing and siting of ESS, dynamic stability assessment, data driven damage forecasting using high resolution weather and outage data, impact assessment, detection, and mitigation of cyberattacks on essential data for load forecasting. In addition, he developed a Matlab-based software EPTOOL incorporating solar generation and battery energy storage system (BESS) dynamic models for analyzing impact of cloud-transient on solar output and the grid and probabilistic sizing of BESS. He has authored more than 80 journal and conference publications and technical reports primarily in power grid areas, as well as other topics such as nuclear energy system PRA, quantitative proliferation risk analysis, and robotics and control.
