Contact Dr Gregory Bizarri

Areas of expertise

  • Precision Engineering


Dr. Bizarri's research is at the confluence of several disciplines, material science, detector physics and instrumentation, and promotes a multidisciplinary approach (synthesis, characterization, instrumentation design and modelling) to untangle and engineer the energy transport and conversion processes in materials (i.e. [1]-[7]). Prior to joining Cranfield Dr Bizarri was a Staff Scientist at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory from 2009-2017. As a Staff Scientist, Dr Bizarri was responsible for a research group of 5+ staff members and supervised more than 25 postdoctoral fellows, graduate and undergraduate students. He had the opportunity to participate in - and a number of times to win, manage and lead - large national and international collaborations on the design, development and engineering of detector materials, sponsored by the US Department of Energy (DOE), the Department of National Security Office (DNDO) and the National Institues of Health (NIH). (e.g. High Throughput Discovery of High Performance Scintillators – DHS/DNDO, Nonproportionality physics of scintillators – DOE and Advance Detector Materials - DOE). He has authored or co-authored 80+ peer-reviewed publications in the discovery, engineering and development of detector materials, delivered 20+ invited talks and chaired numerous sessions in international conferences. He has been involved in several technology transfer programs and holds 4 international patents (PCT/US2015/061111; 14/731,302.2015; 9,053,832.2015; 14/255,697.2014) and 7 provisional patent applications. He is an Associate Editor of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Transaction in Nuclear Science since 2011, and an active reviewer for 10+ scientific journals and government agencies (DOE and DHS).
