Stuart Wilkins

Physicist, Soft X-ray Scattering and Spectroscopy Program Manager

Stuart obtained a M.Sci. in 1999 and a Ph.D. in 2002 from the University of Durham, UK. He then worked as a post-doc at the Institute for Trans-Uranium Elements in Karlsruhe, Germany while at the same time working as a visiting scientist at the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (ESRF) in Grenoble, France. In 2005 he started at the ESRF as a staff scientist on beamline ID20 before leaving in 2006 to start as an assistant physicist at Brookhaven National Lab. Stuart was awarded the D. A.
