Alexandre Deur

Alexandre Deur attended Blaise Pascal University (France) and graduated summa cum laude in October 2000 with a Ph.D. in Nuclear Physics. From 2000 to 2003 he served, first as a postdoctoral research associate and then a research scientist, at the University of Virginia working on experiments at SLAC and Jefferson Lab. He joined Jefferson Lab in January 2004 as a staff scientist. His research focus is on the spin structure of the nucleon and on quark confinement. He is a specialist on polarized targets, particularly 3He and Hydrogen-Deuteride targets and on target and beam polarimetry. He is the official supervisor of a Ph.D. student from Blaise Pascal University working at JLab on polarized targets. He is spokesperson of four Jefferson Lab experiments and has served regularly as coordinator during the experimental runs. Alexandre has over 130 articles published in refereed journals in the fields of Nuclear Physics, Particle Physics and Astrophysics. The publications span from phenomenological/theoretical work, to development of experimental equipment. He has initiated several original works on the extraction and interpretation of the strength of QCD at large distance, on investigating parallels between QCD and gravity and its implication to dark matter and dark energy.
