Roger Falcone



I have taught at UC Berkeley in the Physics Department since 1983, and was Chair from 1995 to 2000. I received my BA (physics) and PhD (EE) from Princeton and Stanford. Since 2006 I have been the director of the Advanced Light Source synchrotron at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, a national user facility that supports over 2000 visiting scientists from around the world every year in a broad range of science, including energy, biology, physics, and chemistry, as well as technology of interest to industries ranging from pharmaceutical to semiconductor companies. My other activities include working with Berkeley's Lawrence Hall of Science on K-12 education issues, oversight committees for the nation’s national laboratories (LLNL and LANL), and advisory boards for several European laboratories. I serve as a board member of the Lafayette Library and Learning Center, a new and unique model for community libraries.
