Temple physicist Zein-Eddine Meziani has become the new Chair of the Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Laboratory‘s User Group Board of Directors.

“This is a unique opportunity to organize working groups and go through a series of workshops and assess the physics that could be achieved perhaps with a collider that could be built at JLab,” he told JLab’s newsletter, ONTARGET.

Meziani has become one of the leading researchers in trying to understand the spin (intrinsic magnetism) structure of the proton and the neutron in terms of its constituents, namely quarks and gluons. He conducts the majority of his research into nucleon and nuclear physics at the Department of Energy’s Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator facility.

He has previously played an instrumental role in the upgrading of the Continuous Electron Beam Accelerator Facility at JLab, which is located in Newport News, Va.
