Hall B Scientific Staff Bios

David Heddle

David Heddle received his Ph.D. in physics in 1984 from Carnegie Mellon University under Professor Leonard Kisslinger. His dissertation was in nuclear theory; he calculated hypernuclear decay rates in a quark model. He was a postdoctoral associate at the University of Maryland and a research physicist at the Nuclear Physics Laboratory at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign where he switched his focus from nuclear theory to accelerator physics under the supervision of Larry Cardman. He came to JLab in 1989 through a joint appointment with Christopher Newport University. After some work in accelerator physics at JLab, primarily in designing a Wien Filter for rotating polarized electrons, he joined the Physics Division and Hall B. His contributions in Hall B have been in a variety of software efforts, including visualization, noise finding, and service oriented architecture. From 2011 until May of 2013 he was the chair of the Mathematics Department at CNU.
