Background

Dr. Hao Zhang studied electro-physics in University of Maryland (USA). He completed his master thesis on developing an adaptive masking method to image beam halo in 2011 and his doctorial dissertation on Experimental study of beam halo in space charge dominated beam in 2014 at IREAP (Institute for research in electronic and applied physics) and UMER (University of Maryland Electron Ring). During his graduate years, he also participate short halo diagnostic project in JLAB FEL facility and injected beam diagnostic in SLAC SPEAR3.

In May 2014, Dr. Zhang joined the Quasar group and University of Liverpool as a research associate. His works are mainly on implementing new techniques into beam instrumentation for either large scientific accelerators or small machine for medical usage. His current research topics include novel beam halo monitor, gas jet-based beam profile monitors and Online Beam Monitor Based on the LHCb VELO Detector.  He is also interested in simulation of beam halo dynamics and generally high intensity beams.
