Brendan T Sullivan
Postdoctoral Research Associate
I am currently working with the Neutron Data Sciences group at Oak Ridge National laboratory to develop improved integration software for single crystal neutron crystallography. Under this project, complex 3D intensity profiles of Bragg peaks from time of flight instruments are modeled and integrated, which decreases sensitivity to noise and user input for integration parameters. The project is open source and will be implemented as an algorithm in Mantid.
Prior to joining Oak Ridge National Laboratory I was a graduate student in Professor Yulia Pushkar's group at Purdue University. While at Purdue, I developed spatially-resolved techniques for brain imaging using synchrotron x-rays and developed software for analyzing very low signal-to-noise x-ray spectroscopy data.
