Andrea Mattera has been an Assistant Physicist at Brookhaven National Laboratory since October 2021. He joined the National Nuclera Data Center as a Postdoctoral Scientist in 2019, after receiving his PhD at Uppsala University (Sweden). His work in Uppsala was split between the characterization of a neutron source for neutron-induced fission studies, and the measurement of fission product yields. At Brookhaven Andrea is part of the National Nuclear Data Center, where he is involved in the compilation and evaluation effort of fission yields, and in experimental activities for the study of decay data of fission products. During his time at the NNDC he also participated in the study of the effect of recent isomeric and independent fission yield data on reactor antineutrino spectra.
