Hall B Scientific Staff Bios

Vitaly Baturin (Batourine)

Vitaly Baturin (Batourine) is a staff scientist at JLab. He is leading the CTOF project of the Hall B 12GeV Upgrade program. Vitaly graduated from the Leningrad State University and was admitted at the Nuclear Physics Institute in 1976 where he specialized in high energy nuclear reactions, muon catalized fusion, pion-nucleon and nucleon-nucleon interactions, and nuclear muon capture. In 1992 he was awarded the degree of Candidate in Physics and Mathematics at the Russian Academy of Science. From 1989 to 1994 he studied Muon Catalyzed Fusion at PSI in Switzerland and implemented the Highly Pressurized Ionization Chamber. From 1993 to 1996 he worked at INFN leading the R&D for the Vertex Straw Detector for KLOE. In 1997 he was invited to Penn State University in the US where he participated in experiment E850 at BNL, which was successfully completed in 1999. From 1999 to 2006 Vitaly worked on hadron physics with electromagnetic probes first at the HERMES experiment at DESY, later at KNU (South Korea) as a Research Scientist with the CLAS Collaboration at JLab. Before joining Jefferson Lab in 2007 Vitaly spent one year at UCLA working with the A2 collaboration at MAMI. He has authored over 90 publications in refereed journals.
