Kevin Yager is a staff scientists in the Soft/Bio Nanomaterials group at the CFN, and responsible for managing the CFN's X9 x-ray scattering endstation. Kevin completed his Ph.D. on photo-responsive polymers at McGill University in 2006. He worked as a postdoctoral fellow in the Polymers Division at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), where he studied nanoscale structures of soft materials using neutron reflectivity and neutron scattering. Kevin's current materials research focuses on understanding fundamental aspects of self-assembly in a variety of systems, including block-copolymer thin films, and organic photo-voltaic blends. He is also active in methods development, such as the detailed modeling of small-angle x-ray scattering (SAXS) data, including reflection-mode (GISAXS) data.
