DOE Brookhaven National Lab Names New Deputy Director for Science and Technology

Brookhaven National Laboratory has selected John Hill as its new deputy director for science and technology, replacing Robert Tribble, who held the role for eight years.

Hill has served the Department of Energy-supported laboratory since 1992 in various capacities, most recently as the director of the National Synchrotron Light Source II, a DOE Office of Science facility that produces ultra-bright X-rays for research on materials that could enable advances in energy, quantum computing, medicine and other fields.

He also served as deputy associate laboratory director for energy and photon sciences and chaired Brookhaven Lab’s COVID-19 science and technology working group, Brookhaven National Laboratory said.

In his new role, Hill will work with JoAnne Hewett, who will join the lab as its new director later this summer, and the Brookhaven Science Associates board of directors and its committees to inform the facility’s future research directions. 

The laboratory’s current initiatives include studies related to nuclear science, energy science, data science, particle physics and quantum information science.
