  1. 1. Dr. Amir H. Sanjari E-Mail: Physicist@nuradmp.com Mobile Telephone: +44 (0)750 886 2073 Profile British Experimental Particle, Nuclear and Radiation Physics researcher and former university lecturer with extensive experience in R&D, Devices, Instrumentation & Measurement, Hardware / Software, Design, Monte-Carlo Simulation, Algorithmic Modelling & Analysis, Scientific Project and Team Management. Experience and skills attained in academia, international laboratories and industry. Critical thinking, detail-oriented with global objectives in mind, pro-active. Seeking a research related position. Most Prominent Achievements Research: Comment upon my major contribution to the award-winning (the UK Rutherford Medal in Physics) discoveries in particle physics research: ' …“If Crystal Barrel uncovers convincing evidence for glueball states, Sanjari's work [analysis, simulation, special trigger development] will have been of highest importance in this.” The evidence is now to hand. Professor Bugg has been awarded the Rutherford Medal … for his work…, including specifically these recent advances. Substantial credit must go to Amir Sanjari whose careful analysis was of great importance in clarifying alternative and sometimes conflicting interpretations of the data. ‘ [Letter of testimonial by Prof. J. A. Edgington, Head, Physics Dept., QMUL, London, U.K., available upon request.] Research Proposals and Grants: Successful track record of submission of proposals and obtaining research funding. My work was instrumental in obtaining funding from the government and private bodies for research in radiation interactions in various media. Teaching & Training: Due to my initiative and pro-active efforts, I designed, setup and managed (formerly NOMOS Corporation) a training course of exceptional standards and quality in radiation physics for oncologists, physicists and dosimetrists which gained accreditation by the relevant U.S. national professional bodies (CAMPEP AAMP & AAMD). Such accreditation had never been bestowed on any commercial company. Management Management and coordination of, and active participation in, international Monte-Carlo Simulation (U.S., CERN) groups, experiments and collaborations (small and large, international) involving design, development and use of various software and hardware systems resulting in innovative processes and discoveries. In addition to being the simulation group coordinator at CERN, I was also the Stony Brook's liaison scientist there. Similarly, later, I represented University of Notre Dame at the Brookhaven National Laboratory. I, furthermore, coordinated and managed, during the experimental runs an international HEP research collaboration (U.S.) consisting of approximately 60 scientists and technical personnel. In addition, I was responsible for design and implementation of some innovative ideas on the technical and management aspects of the experiment. Also Chief of Radiation Physics Department consisting of physicists, et al..

Liaising extensively with clients and in-house technical groups to provide optimum solutions by bringing to bear my scientific, technical, analytical, organisational and interpersonal skills. Lecturer & Researcher in Experimental Radiation Physics (Research & Teaching) Wayne State University, USA, (1999 – 2000) Research in Electronic Portal Imaging Devices (EPIDs). Simulation (programs written and implemented in C and FORTRAN on Unix systems), investigating radiation deposition/detection and scattering. Having been one of the few participants in the successful proposal for funding this research work involving simulating EPIDs (MCNP, etc) particle interaction and energy deposition behaviour in various media for the purpose of characterisation of dose/radiation deposition and distribution. I instigated the implementation of a powerful simulation programme. Researcher & Lecturer in Experimental Particle (sub-nuclear) Physics University of Notre Dame, USA, (Research and Teaching) (1994 - 1996) A key and active participant in the E852 experiment (π p → exotic meson states) carried out at the Brookhaven National Laboratory’s AGS (Alternating Gradient Synchrotron), where I was based for a period liaising with, and availing my previously gained experience in spectroscopy to the collaboration. The aim of this experiment, which consisted of a forward magnetic spectrometer, was to search for the possible existence of exotic, hybrid and glueball states as predicted by the Quantum Chromo Dynamics. My contributions included the responsibility of overseeing and ensuring the optimum performance of the various neutral and charged particle detectors during the maiden three- month run period of the experiment. I was also the experimental run coordinator (see “Management”) with daily management of the running of the experiment and collaborators including scientific and technical stuff.
  3. 3. CV for Dr. Amir H. Sanjari Page 3 of 5 The focus of efforts included Monte Carlo Simulation, software and analysis issues, with the analysis topic of personal interest being E/i and f1(1420) particles. In addition, I participated in the BaBar collaboration effort, on trigger mechanism issues, at the SLAC (Stanford Linear Accelerator Center) B factory, as well as in the Radiative Phi Decay experiment at the CEBAF (Continuous Electron Beam Accelerator facility, Jefferson Lab.) where my experience in spectroscopy was applied. Researcher (post-doctoral) in Experimental Particle (sub-nuclear) Physics State University of New York Stony Brook, USA, (Research and Teaching) (1992 - 1994) Involvement in research and development for the GEM detector at the Superconducting Super Collider. As part of this effort, I was based at CERN where I took part in R&D, in conjunction with the LHC, utilising a magnetic spectrometer carrying out such physics programmes as punch-through measurement and radiation damage assessments to determine suitability of various materials for particle detection by studying the energy deposition and behaviour of various nuclear particles. I also coordinated the Monte-Carlo simulation team (see “Management”) with the additional responsibility for developing the relevant large-scale simulation and analysis programmes that incorporated such factors as hardware components, their properties and performance as well as physics interaction processes involved. I and others utilised these to study electromagnetic and hadronic shower generation and penetration. Researcher (post-doctoral) in Experimental Particle (sub-nuclear) Physics Queen Mary University of London, UK, (Research and Teaching) (1988 – 1992) My research consisted of work on the Crystal Barrel (PS197) experiment, which is a 4-π CsI detector designed to study the proton - antiproton (pp̅ ) annihilation at the CERN LEAR, utilising the beam from the CERN Proton Synchrotron (PS), with almost full charged and neutral particle and radiation detection capability inside a superconducting magnet of ~ 1.5 T (a magnetic spectrometer). As part of my various contributions to this international collaboration I worked on the Slow Control system of the CsI detector (see computing). One of the basic motivations for investigating p̅ p annihilation with full 4π detection, as in this experiment, is Meson Spectroscopy by studying exclusive final states. Of special interest was the possible production and decay of the hybrid M(1405) in the reaction p̅ p → π M, where M decays into π η. Having written the necessary Monte-Carlo simulation and analysis programmes, I embarked upon simulating and analysing the preliminary data and the investigation of the trigger efficiency and performance, in particular that of the p̅ p → π π η channel. This work contributed substantially to the understanding of the special trigger mechanism that I utilised to take relevant data efficiently for analysis. This experimental group was instrumental in identifying the existence of glueballs and absence of the hybrid M(1405). As the most active member of the departmental physics group, the software, hardware and analysis responsibilities rested with me for which my senior colleague was awarded the Rutherford Medal by the UK Institute of Physics (see “Most Prominent Achievement”). Ph.D. Research in Experimental Particle (sub-nuclear) Physics Royal Holloway University of London, UK, (1983-1987) I became involved in the running of the NA1 experiment, one of whose aims was to investigate the photo-production of vector mesons.
