Daine L. Danielson

Daine L. Danielson is an Eckhardt Graduate Scholar in the Enrico Fermi Institute and Department of Physics at the University of Chicago. He is also a Hertz Foundation Fellow. Daine’s research explores the fundamental physics of elementary particles and quantum fields, and its applications to nuclear nonproliferation, using novel technologies such as neutrino-based nuclear surveillance. He is dedicated to the pursuit of interdisciplinary solutions to problems in nuclear energy and defense that integrate policy and scientific perspectives across national borders. To this end, Daine joined the Young Professionals Nuclear Forum in 2019 through his ongoing work at Los Alamos National Laboratory. He holds a BS in Computational Physics with a minor in Mathematics from the University of California, Davis.
