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.
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. Washington currently serves on multiple committees both at SRNL and in the Aiken community. These include the Conduct of R&D safety council, Diversity Board of Directors for SRNS, and the former Board of Directors Chairman and current member for Habitat for Humanity. He is an also an Adjunct Professor at USC Aiken in the chemistry department.
