Dr. Benard Mulilo

BenardMulili.Pic.jpeg did his Ph.D. in nuclear and high energy physics at Korea University in Seoul, South Korea and his dissertation research work in collaboration with RIKEN Research Institute in Japan where he worked on the unfolding analysis of transverse single spin asymmetries (TSSA) for very forward neutron production in transversely polarized proton-proton collisions at a center of mass energy equal to 200 GeV.

The data was taken in 2015 by the PHENIX collaboration at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) at Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL), New York, United States. In the last quarter of 2019, he joined Brookhaven National Laboratory as an intern working on GEANT 3 and PISA simulations of the Zero Degree Calorimeter (ZDC) and Shower Max Detector (SMD) subsystems of the PHENIX detector. His research work is published in the American Physical Review Journal D (PRD). After completion of his PhD, he has continued his research working together with scientists at RIKEN research institute in Japan for the PHENIX Collaboration at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (Brookhaven National Laboratory) studying single spin asymmetries in transversely polarized proton-heavy nuclei collisions and the PHENIX detector correlation studies.

He also owns a masterís degree in experimental nuclear physics at Korea University and during this period, he worked diligently on the development of the neutron detector array (NDA) for the large acceptance multipurpose spectrometer (LAMPS), which is currently being utilized for the study of the nuclear symmetry energy at the RAON rare isotope beam accelerator facility complex in South Korea. The accelerator facility is the first of its kind to have been built in South Korea for basic science research.

He is currently working as a full time lecturer and researcher in the School of Natural Sciences, Department of Physics at the University of Zambia, Great East Road Campus, Lusaka, Zambia. Prior to the commencement of his masterís degree with Korea University and upon completion of his Bachelorís degree in Physics with the University of Zambia, he was among the first student participants of the African School of Physics (ASP), which was held in Stellenbosch, South Africa in 2010 tagged ASP2010.
