Yong Hu

Senior Application Engineer


Dr. Hu has been working in the field of experimental physics for more than decade, with interest, focus, and specialty on distributed controls for particle accelerators.

Dr. Hu completed a Bachelor of Engineering in Electrical and Electronics from Hunan University, China in 2003, and earned his Ph.D. of Engineering in Nuclear Technology and Applications from Shanghai Institute of Applied Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences in 2008. From July 2008 to October 2008, after the completion of his doctoral studies, Dr. Hu visited High Energy Accelerator Research Organization (KEK) in Japan, and upgraded KEK Linac BPM (Beam Position Monitor) software to be based on EPICS (Experimental Physics and Industrial Control System). Since February 2009, Dr. Hu has been working on one of the most advanced synchrotron light sources, NSLS-II, as a Research Associate, and later on as a Senior Application Engineer, at Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL). As the leading engineer for beam diagnostics controls, Dr. Hu has been and continues to be responsible for designing, implementing, developing, and researching the control system for NSLS-II accelerator with focus on beam diagnostics.
