Symposium Biographies


Matteo Cavalleri

Matteo studied Chemistry at the University of Milan (Italy) and University of Valencia (Spain) before obtaining his Ph.D. in the Quantum Chemistry group of the Physics Department at Stockholm University (Sweden) with a thesis entitled "Local Structure of Hydrogen Bonded Liquids". After a 3 years’ PostDoc experience at the Theory Department of the Fritz-Haber-Institut in Berlin (Germany), he joined Wiley in August 2008 as an Editor of physica status solidi. After an experience as Associate Editor of the Journal of Polymer Science Part B: Polymer Physics he moved on to become the Editor-in-Chief of Int. Journal of Quantum Chemistry in October 2011.


Jaime Farrington

Jaime Farrington is the Technology Development Scientist at Sydor Instruments LLC, working on the commercialization of novel technologies for the particle accelerator and synchrotron radiation communities. He serves as Sydor’s scientific liaison, coordinating technology transfer, development and beta testing. Jaime earned his Ph.D. in Physics from the Graduate Center of CUNY in 2010. He has worked in different research areas, in addition to areas outside research such as graduate program recruitment and in the film industry as a consultant. These diverse experiences made him realize that there are many nontraditional opportunities for scientists where valuable skills can be transferred and that there is much to gain when working outside our comfort zone.


Suzanne Golisz

Suzanne is a Research Chemist at Chevron in Richmond, CA. She provides chemical expertise to six North American refineries with respect to the quality of gasoline. Her other responsibilities include evaluating naphtha-range biofuels, consulting on emerging refinery processes and advising the supply and trading business unit. Prior to joining Chevron, Suzanne was a Research Associate at Brookhaven National Lab where she investigated carbon dioxide reduction. Suzanne has a B.S. from the University of Rochester and a Ph.D. in Organometallic Chemistry from the California Institute of Technology. Outside of chemistry, Suzanne competes in triathlons and plays the violin in a community orchestra.


Yue Hao

Dr. Yue Hao received his Ph.D from Indiana University at Bloomington. He then joined BNL and focused his study towards the future electron ion collider eRHIC. He works on various beam dynamics issues and related numerical algorithm. From 2010, he became adjunct professor of Department of Physics and Astronomy, Stony Brook University.


Deborah Keszenman

Dr. Keszenman studied Medicine at the Medical School of the Universidad de la Republica (UdelaR) in Montevideo, Uruguay. After earning the MD degree, Dr. Keszenman obtained a Master of Science and a PhD in Biophysics from the UdelaR-PEDECIBA in Uruguay. Before joining Brookhaven National Laboratory, Dr Keszenman worked at the School of Medicine and Faculty of Sciences as a Professor of Biophysics, as a research member of PEDECIBA, and as a General Physician in Clinical Practice in Uruguay. Her research in Radiation Biology includes radiation induced DNA damage and repair. Dr. Keszenman started at BNL as a Postdoctoral Research Associate and at present, she is a Biologist Associate in the Biosciences Department, and a Beam Line Scientist of the NASA Space Radiation Laboratory.
