Professor Ken Czerwinski has performed radiochemistry research since 1986 and had his first professor position 1996. He obtained his Ph.D. on the chemistry of Rutherfordium from the University of California, Berkeley in 1992. He was the first director of the Radiochemistry Ph.D. program at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas and is currently a full professor of radiochemistry at the university. Professor Czerwinski has developed courses on nuclear waste management, nuclear separations, radiochemistry, radiopharmaceuticals, and nuclear forensics. His experimental efforts focus on evaluating the chemical forms and molecular structure of compounds containing radioelements in liquid and solid phases. All research it tightly coupled to the education and training of students in laboratory studies of radioelements, a focus area of the Czerwinski research group. Professor Czerwinski currently consults for industry, international entities, and the federal government on areas associated with the use and application of radioelements. He has received multiple grants from the DOE, NNSA, NSF, and industry during his academic career and has over 200 peer reviewed publications and patents.
