Tenzing Joshi is a career-track Staff Scientist in the Nuclear Science Division at LBL. Dr. Joshi’s research is focused on developing radiological sensor systems and analysis tools that may be used for both prevention and response to radiological emergencies. He earned a Bachelors degree in Nuclear Engineering with honors from Purdue University and a Ph.D. in Nuclear Engineering from the University of California, Berkeley. While pursuing his doctorate he was a Lawrence Scholar at LLNL working in the Rare Event Detection group. Tenzing’s hobbies include playing soccer, cycling, and snowboarding.
