- Author BiographyAndrei Seryi is currently director of the John Adams Institute for Accelerator Science and professor at the University of Oxford. He graduated from Novosibirsk State University in 1986 and received his Ph.D from the Budker Institute of Nuclear Physics in 1994. Until 2010, he worked at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, operated by Stanford University for the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Science, where he led the design and first stages of implementation of the Facility for Advanced Accelerator Experimental Tests project and the beam delivery efforts for the linear collider. He also served as deputy spokesperson of the High Energy Accelerator Research Organization's Accelerator Test Facility (ATF) International Collaboration for the ATF2 project, is serving as a chairperson or is a member of a number of advisory committees, and is a fellow of the American Physical Society.
