LANSCE welcomes Mark Bourke as the selected LANSCE-Lujan Center Leader.  Mark returns to LANSCE, where he began his Los Alamos career in 1990 as a postdoctoral researcher using neutron diffraction to study constitutive response in materials of engineering relevance.  Previously, he served as deputy group leader for the Materials Science in Radiation and Dynamic Extremes (MST-8) at LANL.   Mark holds a B.Sc. in physics and Ph.D. in mechanical engineering from Imperial College, London University. In 1993, Mark joined the staff of LANL, becoming instrument scientist for the NPD (Neutron Powder Diffractometer). During 1997 he played a pivotal role proposing to the Office of Science the construction of the SMARTS (Spectrometer for Materials Research at Temperature and Stress) instrument. Since 2008 he has been a member of the MaRIE (Matter-Radiation Interactions in Extremes) core team, which is developing and implementing a strategy for an experimental facility to be located on the LANSCE mesa.  He is chair of an International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) collaborative research program entitled " Development, Characterization and Testing of Materials of Relevance to Nuclear Energy Sector Using Neutron Beams".

Please join us in welcoming Mark back and thanking Jim Rhyne for his leadership and contributions bringing the Lujan Center to its recognized scientific stature.
