Keith M Taddei

Neutron Scattering Scientist

Keith Taddei received a B.S. in Physics from Lewis University where he performed research building and characterizing open cavity lasers. He received his Ph.D. in Physics from Northern Illinois University where he held a joint position as a researcher at Argonne National Laboratory in the Neutron and X-ray Scattering group. There his research focused on the synthesis and study of unconventional superconductors.  He then took a postdoc at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, where he continued to use neutron scattering to study low-dimensional superconductors, multiferroics and novel magnet states.  Keith is currently an instrument scientist on the WAND2 and HB-2A diffractometers of ORNL’s HFIR. His current research focuses on using neutron scattering (and advancing neutron scattering techniques) to study magnetic Weyl semimetals, spin-triplet superconductivity and triangular lattice antiferromagnets.
