Andrei T. Savici

Dr. Savici is a developer for the Mantid project, mainly handling data processing for direct geometry neutron spectrometers. Other substantial contributions are to the understanding the statistical significance of neutron scattering measurements, such as in the case of diffuse elastic scattering. Experimental interests include low dimensional quantum magnetism and superconductivity.
