Dr. Yun Luo is an accelerator physicist in the Electron-Ion Collider Directorate at Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL).  Before he joined BNL in 2003, he had been working on the Beijing Electron-positron Collider (BEPC) at IHEP  and the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN.  In 2006,  Dr. Luo proposed and demonstrated a global betatron decoupling feedback based on a continuous coupling measurement.  Dr. Luo carried out a sophisticated weak-strong beam-beam simulation for RHIC head-on beam-beam compensation with electron lenses, which became operational  in 2015 RHIC proton run and improved  the luminosity.  Dr. Luo was the run coordinator of the 2012 RHIC U-U and Cu-Au runs, during which he proposed new lattice configurations to greatly improve the off-momentum dynamic aperture and the beam lifetime.  Burning-off dominated physics stores and  peak luminosity exceeding initial one at the beginning of store were first observed in the U-U collision. Since 2016, Dr. Luo began to work on EIC accelerator physics design. Currently he mainly participates in and coordinates EIC   beam-beam interaction simualtion studies, HSR dynamic aperture calculation / improvement with beam-beam and nonlinear magnetic field errors,  detector solenoid effect compensation in IR6. Dr. Luo also serves as the coordinator for RHIC Accelerator Physics Experiment (APEX) program since 2014.
