Dr. Thomas Kroc is an Applications physicist for Technology Development with the Illinois Accelerator Research Center (IARC). This position draws on his accumulated experience in fundamental high-energy physics research, nuclear power, medical physics, and accelerator physics. Since 2016 he has been Fermilab’s lead investigator in understanding the application of electron and x-ray beams for medical device sterilization. He was the primary author of IARC’s report on medical device sterilization to the NNSA, was a subject-matter expert with a DHS Non-Isotopic Alternative Technologies Working Group, and is now a member of a National Academies committee on Radioactive Sources: Applications and Alternative Technologies. As a member of, and finally head of, Fermilab’s Neutron Therapy Facility, he lead its successful 510(k) submission for its Neutron Therapy System, developed a new multi-leaf collimator, and adapted, installed, and commissioned a GE 8800 CT scanner to enable it to scan upright patients, in addition to clinical medical physics duties. Dr. Kroc managed the magnetic systems and designed the radiation shielding for the 5 MeV DC accelerator and its high current electron beam as part of Fermilab’s successful demonstration and subsequent operation of relativistic electron cooling. As an undergrad, Dr. Kroc studied physics and nuclear engineering including nuclear safeguards as an undergraduate researcher at Argonne National Laboratory. Dr. Kroc holds a PhD in Physics from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He earned his undergraduate degree in Engineering Physics from The Ohio State University.

Dr. Andrea E. Copping joined Pacific Northwest National Laboratory's Marine Sciences Laboratory in Sequim in 2006, as the Senior Program Manager for marine and coastal waters. Andrea is the research lead for marine and hydrokinetic energy development, and for offshore wind development, for Pacific Northwest National Laboratories, on behalf of the US Department of Energy. Dr. Copping’s projects focus on environmental impacts from the development of wave, tidal, offshore wind, ocean current and riverine energy installations, and the role that these effects could play in technology development and project initiation across the nation. Using risk-based approaches, the marine and hydrokinetic and offshore wind team lead by Dr. Copping integrates laboratory, field and modeling measurements into a coherent body of evidence to support siting and permitting decisions. Dr. Copping works across several scientific disciplines to determine implications of human stressors on marine resources and ecosystems processes, working with stakeholder groups and resource managers to ensure that the available scientific information is accessible and available.
Andrea holds a BSc. in marine biology from McGill University, and a M.S. and PhD. in biological oceanography from the University of Washington. Although trained as a blue water oceanographer, Andrea has spent most of her professional career on interactions between human activities and the marine environment in coastal and estuarine areas. Andrea joined Pacific Northwest National Laboratory in 2006. Previously Andrea was Associate Director of the Washington Sea Grant, University of Washington, responsible for research and outreach on a wide range of marine topics.
