R. Timothy Short

Chemical Sensors Group Manager, Sensing and Domain Awareness

R. Timothy Short worked for eight years as a research scientist in the Chemical and Analytical Sciences Division at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) in Tennessee after following a one-and-a-half-year post-doctoral position at the Manne Siegbahn Institute of Physics in Stockholm, Sweden. The major emphasis of his work there was instrumental development in mass spectrometry.

Short left ORNL in 1997 to work as a sensor development engineer within the College of Marine Science’s Center for Ocean Technology at the University of South Florida in St. Petersburg, Florida. In 2007, he joined SRI’s newly formed Marine Technology Program in St. Petersburg. At USF and SRI, his primary research interests have included development of underwater mass spectrometers and miniaturization of mass spectrometers.

He received his B.Sc. degree in Physics from Florida State University, and Ph.D. in experimental atomic collision physics from the University of Tennessee.
