Jason Newby is a senior scientist at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory currently serving as the group leader for Neutrino Research in the Physics Division. He earned his Ph.D. in High Energy Nuclear Physics at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville studying de-confined nuclear matter at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider at the Brookhaven National Laboratory. Jason began his career in nuclear non-proliferation at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory exploring time correlated signatures of special nuclear materials before moving to ORNL to develop passive and active neutron imaging techniques for nuclear security applications. Jason now serves as deputy spokesperson of the COHERENT collaboration and leads the local experimental efforts at the Spallation Neutron Source to study the fundamental properties of the neutrino.
