报告人：美国劳伦斯利弗莫尔国家实验室物理和生命部副主任 William Goldstein博士
William H. Goldstein received his Ph.D. in theoretical physics from Columbia University in 1983, for work on symmetry breaking in models with composite quarks and leptons. As a post-doc at SLAC, he studied magnetic monopoles. In 1985, he joined the Physics Directorate at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, to work on the computational modeling of many-body atomic systems in high-temperature plasmas. He was named group leader for computational physics in the lab’s nuclear test program in 1989, deputy division leader for high-temperature atomic physics in the Physics and Space Technology Directorate in 1994, and program leader for physical data research in the Stockpile Stewardship and Management Program in 1997. In 1999 he became acting associate director for Physics, and was named associate director for Physics and Advanced Technology in 2001.
At Livermore, Goldstein’s main research interests have been in computational modeling of highly charged ions, atomic spectroscopy, and radiative processes in plasmas.
As Associate Director for Physical and Life Sciences at LLNL, Goldstein leads an organization of approximately 900 people engaged in condensed matter and materials science, chemical science, atmospheric and earth systems science, high energy density physics, plasma physics, nuclear science, high energy physics, radiation detection, optical science, biological science, and fusion research, supporting Livermore Laboratory’s national security and science missions. Goldstein was named a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) in 2009.
