Background

Ramona Vogt studied physics at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and the State University of New York at Stony Brook. After receiving her PhD, she first worked as a postdoctoral fellow at LLNL and then at the GSI Helmholtz Centre for Heavy Ion Research in Darmstadt, Germany. In 1993, Vogt started as a staff scientist at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, and she continues her work there today as a guest scientist. She currently works as an adjunct professor in the Physics Department at the University of California, Davis, and as a staff scientist in the Nuclear Data & Theory group at LLNL.

Research Interests

Vogt’s research interests include phenomenology of nuclear fission, heavy flavor (charm and bottom quarks and quarkonium) production in p+p, p+A and A+A, and collisions at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) and the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). She is credited as the co-developer of the Fission Reaction Event Yield Algorithm (FREYA) fission event generator.
