(Press-News.org) NEWPORT NEWS, VA – The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility has selected Tim Michalski to lead its Engineering Division as the Engineering Division Manager. In this role, Michalski oversees all aspects of the management and operation of the Engineering Division. The division includes more than 200 staff members and supports the Continuous Electron Beam Accelerator Facility and the lab’s growing project portfolio.

“I am proud to name Tim as our newest Engineering Division Manager,” said Jefferson Lab Director Stuart Henderson. “Tim has more than a decade of experience as the deputy engineering manager, working closely with the founding manager of the division. I am confident that Tim’s skills, experience and knowledge will serve us well as he leads our world-class engineering organization into a bright future serving the mission of the laboratory and the Department of Energy. ”

“I am happy to be serving in this new role.  After quite a few years as the division deputy, I feel I have a unique perspective towards the division and where it can add further value to the lab’s mission,” Michalski said.

Michalski has more than 30 years of experience in engineering, with 25 years of management experience in a wide range of engineering disciplines and industries. He began his career in New York, where he spent 10 years at Harris/RF Communications and five more at Phillips Broadband Networks, gaining experience managing mechanical and manufacturing engineers and designers while also delivering on individual and team projects. He later managed the design of engine timing systems for global customers at Borg Warner Morse TEC, where he also served as global project team lead.

In 2004, Michalski moved to Hampton Roads for a position at AdaptivEnergy, LLC, where he rose through the company ranks from advisory design engineer to director of engineering to vice president & general manager. He demonstrated a broad understanding of technical markets, carefully managing a global Intellectual Property portfolio and developing the company’s revenue streams through product line development, investor financing and strategic partnerships. 

Michalski joined Jefferson Lab in 2010, where he has served as the Engineering Division deputy manager, while also leading several technical projects to completion. He developed and implemented the site-wide Configuration Management program and the Conduct of Engineering Manual, which documents the engineering development process for new systems at the lab. 

“The Engineering Division is a highly skilled team that integrates well with other divisions and does an excellent job supporting the CEBAF program as well as partnership projects,” he said. “I look forward to incorporating lessons learned from previous organizations and best practices that can be applied here at the lab.”

Michalski has a bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering from Rochester Institute of Technology and a master's degree in engineering management from Syracuse University.

Princeton Chem, IAS uncover spatial patterns in distribution of galaxies
2023-03-14
In late 2021, Salvatore Torquato, on sabbatical from Princeton’s Department of Chemistry, reached across the aisle as it were and invited a young astrophysicist at the Institute for Advanced Study to apply the tools of statistical mechanics to his own work on the distribution of galaxies. The astrophysicist, Oliver Philcox, now a postdoc at the Simons Foundation, was intrigued. A year-long collaboration ensued. The questions at the heart of their unusual partnership were straightforward: can the statistical descriptors Torquato has worked with throughout his career find application in unlikely places like cosmology, and can they accurately characterize the complexity in the distribution ...

Researchers look to AI for decision-making in extreme situations

Researchers look to AI for decision-making in extreme situations
2023-03-14
Imagine you are a doctor managing the emergency room of a large hospital. You suddenly get a call reporting a mass shooting at a nearby concert. In 20 minutes, you will be responsible for triaging more than 200 patients with a range of injuries. You do not have enough staff or resources and the hospital policies are not designed for a situation this dire. “When people respond to emergencies, many decisions they face are quite predictable. They’re trained on them, and there’s policy,” said UMass Lowell’s Neil Shortland, associate professor in the School of Criminology and Justice Studies. “But every now and then, they get stuck with a really ...

Mix-and-match kit could enable astronauts to build a menagerie of lunar exploration bots

Mix-and-match kit could enable astronauts to build a menagerie of lunar exploration bots
2023-03-14
When astronauts begin to build a permanent base on the moon, as NASA plans to do in the coming years, they’ll need help. Robots could potentially do the heavy lifting by laying cables, deploying solar panels, erecting communications towers, and building habitats. But if each robot is designed for a specific action or task, a moon base could become overrun by a zoo of machines, each with its own unique parts and protocols. To avoid a bottleneck of bots, a team of MIT engineers is designing a kit of universal ...

Common dry cleaning chemical linked to Parkinson’s

2023-03-14
A common and widely used chemical may be fueling the rise of the world’s fastest growing brain condition – Parkinson’s disease. For the past 100 years, trichloroethylene (TCE) has been used to decaffeinate coffee, degrease metal, and dry clean clothes. It contaminates the Marine Corps base Camp Lejeune, 15 toxic Superfund sites in Silicon Valley, and up to one-third of groundwater in the U.S.  TCE causes cancer, is linked to miscarriages and congenital heart disease, and is associated ...

Molecular component of caffeine may play a role in gut health

Brigham researchers studying how and why certain cell types proliferate in the gut found that xanthine, which is found in coffee, tea and chocolate, may play a role in Th17 differentiation   Insights may help investigators better understand gut health and the development of conditions such as inflammatory bowel disease The gut is home to a cast of microbes that influence health and disease. Some types of microorganisms are thought to contribute to the development of inflammatory conditions, such as inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), but the exact cascade of events that leads from microbes to immune cells to disease remains ...

Solving the Alzheimer’s disease puzzle: One piece at a time

Solving the Alzheimer’s disease puzzle: One piece at a time
2023-03-14
Researchers from Drexel University have uncovered a novel regulatory mechanism in the brain that is essential for making the right kinds of proteins that promote healthy brain function, and its malfunctioning may be an early contributor of the development of Alzheimer’s disease. Brain cells are continuously undergoing changes in response to environmental stimuli and to record new memories. Such complex brain capability relies on the ability of brain cells to generate different functional variants of the same protein using a process known as alternative RNA splicing. Recent studies have reported defects ...
