NSSC Fellow
Michigan State

Kaylee Hammerton Fenker is a senior scientist at Savannah River National Laboratory. Her research is focused on understanding how the quasifission reaction channel is effect by the neutron-richness of the system. Quasifission is a process known to hinder superheavy element synthesis by multiple orders of magnitude. To efficiently study this process, Kalee is working on the fabrication and commissioning of a novel Coincidence Fission Fragment Detector.
