Graduate Student
UCB RadWatch

Department of Nuclear Engineering, UC Berkeley

Ryan Pavlovsky is a Nuclear Engineering graduate student at the University of California, Berkeley. For the past 3yrs Ryan has lead or taught the lab section for NE104, a class that provides students with the basics of Radiation Detection. Ryan has also been involved with the RadWatch outreach effort by communicating with the public and public offices on issues regarding naturally occurring radioactive materials in the environment. He directly mentors several undergraduate students through this program.

Ryan’s research interests are in the development of novel detector readout systems for silicon CCD-electron tracking detectors. He is also interested in the fundamental, but highly coupled, limits of radiation detector energy and position resolution. Ryan has expertise in Nuclear Instrumentation Physics, Nuclear Physics, GEANT4 and massively parallel computing.
