Robert L. Shankle

I am an engineering science technician for a full staff of physicists at the NIST Center for Neutron Research (NCNR) in the Neutron physics group, Radiation Division of the Physical Measurement Laboratory. I support our staff of scientists and nearly 50 guest researchers and college students.

As a machinist I make various parts from a variety of different materials that makeup scientific instruments, holders for samples, or detectors being used by staff or guests. I also weld, wire, solder, plumb, build and repair items requested by group members and guest researchers.

I am also the Neutron Physics group property officer. I track and loan group property and instruments to various universities and research facilities throughout the United States and the world.
