Chris Ruiz

Chris Ruiz received his Ph.D. in experimental nuclear astrophysics in 2003 from the University of Edinburgh in Scotland. He did his postdoctoral work at TRIUMF and the University of York, before becoming a TRIUMF Research Scientist and head of the DRAGON Group in 2007. His research focuses on the direct measurement of astrophysically important nuclear reactions, using accelerated radioactive and stable ion beams, and neutron beams.
