Kevin Twedt

Kevin Twedt is a CNST/UMD Postdoctoral Researcher in the Electron Physics Group. He received a B.S. in Physics from the University of Northern Iowa and a Ph.D. in Physics from the University of Maryland, College Park.  His doctoral research focused on developing new techniques to measure electrostatic oscillations in ultracold plasmas.  Kevin is working with Jabez McClelland developing a new type of ion microscope that uses photoionized, laser-cooled lithium atoms as its source.
