Kaz Gofron joined the Photon Sciences Directorate on July 18, 2011. Reporting to Bob Dalesio and assigned to the Photon Division, Kaz will be primarily responsible for developing control system solutions for experiment control, providing data and image acquisition from detectors, and providing scientific computing for data analysis.
Graduating with a Ph.D. in Physics from the University of Illinois, Kaz soon changed career focus software and computer engineering when he was employed by Motorola Labs in Schaumburg, Illinois.
In 2005, he joined Argonne National Laboratory as the Telecommunications Manager for the Center for Nanoscale Materials. Shortly afterwards, Kaz moved to the Structural Biology Center as a Software Scientist using a VME based real time EPICS control system for SBC macromolecular crystallography diffraction data collection.
