Keith M Taddei
PostDoctoral Research Associate
Keith M. Taddei received a B.S. in Physics from Lewis University where he performed undergraduate research building and characterizing open cavity infrared lasers. He then received his Ph.D. in Physics from Northern Illinois University where he held a joint position as a guest graduate researcher at Argonne National Laboratory in the Neutron and X-ray Scattering Group and received funding through a dissertation completion fellowship. His research focused on the synthesis and study via scattering techniques of iron-based superconductors. As a postdoctoral associate at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), he has continued to use neutron scattering to study quantum materials including multiferroics, low-dimensional systems and rare-earth magnetism. He currently leads a collaboration to investigate an exotic family of quasi-one-dimensional superconducting materials to understand how incipient orders lead to unconventional superconductivity. He helps operate and support the High Flux Isotope Reactor’s neutron powder diffractometer instrument HB-2A. Dr. Taddei is a member of the APS, ACA, PDS, NSSA, Sigma Xi and is the current secretary of ORNL’s post graduate association.
