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.
Fermilab is America's premier laboratory for particle physics and accelerator research. Since 1967, Fermilab has worked to expand humanity's understanding of matter, energy, space and time, studying the smallest building blocks of matter using some of the largest and most complex machines in the world.
The laboratory's 6,800-acre site is located in Batavia, Illinois, and its 1,700-plus employees include scientists and engineers from around the world. More than 4,000 scientists from over 50 countries also collaborate with Fermilab to build and operate world-leading accelerator, detector and computing facilities to investigate the physics of fundamental particles.
One of the world's pioneering laboratories for accelerator science and technology, Fermilab is home to the 83,000-square-foot Illinois Accelerator Research Center (IARC), where lab scientists and engineers partner with industry to translate technology developed in the pursuit of science into the next generation of industrial accelerators, products and applications. The center features an experimental area and provides state-of-the-art facilities for visiting scientists and entrepreneurs, including the Accelerator Applications Development and Demonstration (A2D2) machine, a test platform for electron-beam- and X-ray-based inspection and testing.
Fermilab's Office of Partnerships and Technology Transfer is a vital part of the laboratory, transitioning technologies to private-sector partners to enhance the nation's economic competitiveness. The office enables the formation of high-impact partnerships with industry, academia and other institutions that support the global and scientific missions of the lab.
Dr. Brigmon received his BS in Microbiology and PhD in Environmental Engineering from the University of Florida, Gainesville. Dr. Brigmon has over 40 years of research expertise in environmental engineering, bioremediation, nanomaterials for antimicrobial applications, toxicology and microbiology. Currently, as a Senior Fellow Engineer in the Savannah River National Laboratory Advanced and Bio Materials Group Dr. Brigmon oversees several applied research and development projects funded by the US Department of Energy (DOE), US Department of Agriculture, and the National Nuclear Security Agency (NNSA). These projects include monitoring microbial corrosion in high level processing and waste storage facilities, evaluating the effects of tritium on the soil biome and its restoration potential, and the role of microbial biosurfactants in uranium mobility in SRS soils. Dr. Brigmon is a subject matter expert on Legionella pneumophila in cooling towers and currently is responsible for monitoring 20 cooling towers at SRS for this disease-causing microorganism. Dr. Brigmon serves as Chair of the SRS Institutional Biosafety Committee (IBC). He is an Adjunct Professor in the Clemson University Department of Environmental Engineering and Earth Sciences and the University of South Carolina. Dr. Brigmon has over 93 peer reviewed publications, 36 technical reports, and four patents. He currently has international bioremediation project collaborations ongoing in Canada and Colombia. Dr. Brigmon serves as an instructor on weapons of mass destruction (WMD) to US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), US Department of State (DoS) as well as the US Department of Defense (DOD), and has received letters of commendation for his work. He is an Adjunct Professor in the Clemson University Department of Environmental Engineering and Earth Sciences and the University of South Carolina.
