Hall B Scientific Staff Bios

Daniel S. Carman

Daniel S. Carman received his B.S. (with honors) in physics in 1988 from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. He attended graduate school at Indiana University and completed his Ph.D. in 1995 on studies of N-N quasifree scattering at IUCF. From 1995 to 1999 he was a postdoctoral associate in the medium energy group at Carnegie Mellon University. During this time he focused on studies of hypernuclei at the AGS at Brookhaven National Laboratory. At this time he also began his involvement at Jefferson Laboratory. His primary responsibilities included working on the Hall B Region 1 drift chambers and commissioning the full drift chamber system. He also developed a research program primarily focusing on strangeness electroproduction. In 1999 he took a tenure track faculty position in physics at Ohio University, where his research program focused on work in both Hall B and Hall D at Jefferson Lab. He was supported by research grants from the National Science Foundation and was awarded tenure in 2004. In 2006 he took a staff scientist position in Hall B. He has been the group leader for the Hall B Time-of-Flight system for both the CLAS detector and the CLAS12 detector upgrade project. He also served as the group leader for the Hall D Forward Drift Chamber system from 2002 to 2010. He has mentored many graduate students and postdoctoral physicists. He has authored more than 140 papers in refereed journals and has been a lead author on nearly 20 papers. He served on the Hall D Collaboration Board from 2005-2006 and on the JLab User's Group Board of Directors in 2010-2011.
