RSCS Hires 2 New Health Physicists from the University of Massachusetts, Lowell
Posted on September 15th, 2012

RSCS has been providing technical and administrative support to Adam Kryskow and Matthew Carey in their personal quests to earn  Master’s Degrees in Radiological Sciences.  As their research projects near completion we have recognized their excellent skills and initiative by offering them full time employment.

Adam Kryskow came to RSCS as a laborer in 2006 to support a 2-year thorium decommissioning project. Following the completion of that endeavor, Adam supported our product sales initiative.  After being exposed to the field of Radiation Safety for several months,  Adam decided complete his BS at UMass Lowell in Radiation Safety and then proceeded to enter the Masters program.  He approached us for guidance on his research thesis and we suggested an idea to develop an innovative criticality detector.  Adam accepted the challenge and his hard work proved successful as our final testing proved.  We welcome Adam to our team (again!).

Matthew Carey accepted a summer intern job for RSCS in 2010 while he was in his MS program at UMass Lowell.  He was also looking for research thesis suggestions.  Once again, we provided the idea that he pursued.  His project simulated the response of a gamma portal monitor using MCNP (a Monte Carlo transport computer code) to internal or external radioactivity.  His work also included the validation of these calculations using detailed measurements using a humanoid phantom and NIST traceable radioactive standards.

We are fortunate to have secured the employment of these talented individuals.  RSCS looks forward to thier continued success.
