Dr. Charlie Cooper has been at Fermilab for more 15 years and received his doctorate at the University of Cincinnati in 2003, focusing on the synthesis, characterization, and use of novel materials and systems for chemical separations. He also received an MBA from the University of Chicago in 2015. He has 10 years of experience in the manufacturing of superconducting radio frequency accelerators for high energy physics experiments. The past 5 years he has spent engaged in application and technology development of electron beam accelerator technology for commercial application. He has expertise in use of electron beams for environmental remediation including a workshop hosted on the topic. He has published papers in the Journal of Membrane Science, IEEE transactions on applied superconductivity, Superconductor Science and Technology, Industrial & Engineering Chemistry Research, Physical Review Accelerators and Beams, Journal of the Electrochemical Society and a patent on accelerator technology. He served on the board of directors of the Chicago Council of Science and Technology and is currently on the executive committee of the accelerator applications division of the American Nuclear Society.
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.
