Areg Danagoulian is an Assistant Professor of Nuclear Science and Engineering at MIT. He received his S.B. degree in physics from MIT. He did his PhD research in Experimental Nuclear Physics at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. His thesis experiment took place at Jefferson Lab and studied real Compton scattering on the proton at 2-6 GeV, allowing to probe the proton's internal structure and how it couples to external excitations. After his Ph.D., Areg worked at Los Alamos as a postdoctoral researcher, and as a senior scientist at Passport Systems, Inc. Areg's current research interests focus on technical applications in nuclear security, such areas nuclear nonproliferation, technologies for treaty verification, nuclear safeguards, and cargo security. Specific research areas include the development of technologies for treaty verification purposes and research in tunable monochromatic sources for active interrogation of cargoes. Other areas of interest involve nuclear forensics and development of new detection concepts.
