Peter Wanderer

Division Head, Superconducting Magnet Division

Peter Wanderer was awarded a Ph.D. in Elementary Particle Physics by Yale University. He joined the staff of Brookhaven National Laboratory, following postdoctoral positions at Cornell University and the University of Wisconsin. In 1980, he began working on superconducting accelerator magnets for the Isabelle Project. His magnet work continued with the CBA, SSC, RHIC, LHC, LARP, APUL and other projects. During the SSC and RHIC projects, he was head of the Magnet Test Group. For the RHIC project, he co-chaired the Magnet Acceptance Committee. He is Project Manager for the APUL Project. He has been Head of the Superconducting Magnet Division since 2006.

He has served on the Program Committees for the International Conference on Magnet Technology, for the Particle Accelerator Conference, and for the Applied Superconductivity Conference. He is a member of the American Physical Society and a Senior Member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers.
