Biography

Roger W. Falcone, PhD
Division Director, Advanced Light Source at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory

Professor of Physics, University of California, Berkeley

Roger Falcone, PhD, has been a professor in the Physics Department at Berkeley since 1983, and chaired the Department from 1995–2000. He was appointed Director of the Advanced Light Source at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in 2006. His research focuses on the use of ultrafast pulses of light to study dynamic phenomena in materials, and his work has led to greater understanding of materials under extreme conditions of pressure and temperature.

Falcone is the founding director of a UC multi-campus research program, the Institute for Materials Dynamics under Extreme Conditions, which supports activities in high-energy-density sciences at all UC campuses and laboratories. He was a founding member of Cal Teach at Berkeley, a statewide program aimed at producing 1,000 new science and math teachers each year for K-12 classrooms, and currently chairs the Campus Advisory Committee for the Lawrence Hall of Science, UC Berkeley's public science center.

Falcone is a fellow of the American Physical Society, the Optical Society of America, and the American Association for the Advancement of Science. He serves on the Science and Technology Committee for the Board of Governors of the national security labs at Livermore and Los Alamos. In his hometown, he serves as a founding trustee of the Lafayette Library and Learning Center. Falcone received his undergraduate degree in physics from Princeton University and his PhD in electrical engineering from Stanford University.
