NEXT Integrated Project Team

NEXT stands for NSLS-II Experimental Tools, a set of six beamlines being developed for the National Synchrotron Light Source II (NSLS-II), with funding from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE).

DOE uses an integrated project teaming approach for managing the NEXT Project. This Integrated Project Team (IPT) is organized and led by the NSLS-II Federal Project Director. It is an essential element in DOE’s acquisition process and is being used during all phases of the project's life cycle. This team consists of professionals representing diverse disciplines with the specific knowledge, skills, and abilities to support the Federal Project Director in successfully executing the project. The IPT for the NEXT Project will consist of members from both DOE and the contractor, Brookhaven Science Associates (BSA). The team membership will change as the project progresses from initiation to closeout to ensure the necessary skills are always represented to meet the project's needs.

The IPT is subdivided into core, executive and support areas, each with specific responsibilities.

Core members include:

  • Robert Caradonna, NEXT Federal Project Director and IPT Lead, Brookhaven Site Office
  • Philip Kraushaar, NEXT Program Manager, Basic Energy Sciences
  • Steve Hulbert, NEXT Project Manager, Photon Sciences, BNL

Executive members include:

  • Frank Crescenzo, DOE Acting Manager of the Office of Science Brookhaven Site Office
  • Steve Dierker, Associate Laboratory Director for Photon Sciences, BNL
  • Aesook Byon, Deputy Associate Laboratory Director for Construction, Photon Sciences, BNL
  • Qun Shen, Photon Division Director, Photon Sciences, BNL

Support members are involved in the daily activities of the NEXT Project and have functions in project management, project controls, field execution, safety oversight, and/or business operations that are integral to the NEXT Project.
