Research Interests

Dr. Harry Radousky has published over 100 papers in the areas of magnetism, superconductivity, high pressure physics, optical materials, energy harvesting and nanomaterials. Administratively at LLNL, he has served as Deputy Director for the University Relations Program (URP); Division Leader for Recruiting Programs; and Program Director for the Visiting Scientists Program. These included concurrent appointments as the founding Director of LLNL's Materials Research Institute from 1997-2000, Director of Lab Collaborations at UCOP from 2001-2002, Scientific Editor for Science & Technology Review (S&TR) from 2005-2007, Program Manager of the Lawrence Fellows Post-Doctoral Program from 1997-2009, and the Program Manager of the Lawrence Scholar Graduate Student Program from 2003-2009. Dr. Radousky has also spent time on assignment at Lawrence Berkeley National Lab (LBNL) in their Technology Transfer Department and as a Visiting Scientist in the Illinois Applied Research Institute the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign (UIUC). He holds an adjunct appointment as Professor of Physics at the University of California, Davis, and since 1996 has periodically taught a freshman seminar on the Physics of Baseball.
