Dr. Bogan is a Staff Scientist in the PULSE Institute at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory. He has a passion for wandering along non-traditional research interfaces. His group currently studies the structure and dynamics of (bio)aerosols with ultrafast lasers. His career trajectory has included single particle levitation by electrodynamic balance, fundamental studies of electrospray and biological/aerosol mass spectrometry, and membrane protein structure determination by mass spectrometry. More recently he has helped pioneer femtosecond x-ray diffractive imaging, a new method utilizing the recently operation x-ray free electron lasers, like the Linac Coherent Light Source, that has extended x-ray microscopy to the femtosecond time domain and atomic resolution. Dr. Bogan’s research has resulted in over 55 peer-reviewed publications, book chapters and patents. His research has been cited over 1100 times and he has given over 30 invited seminars. His current research at the Stanford PULSE Institute is supported by the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Science Basic Energy Sciences through the AMOS program of CSGB and the Linac Coherent Light Source, the SLAC Laboratory Directed Research and Development program, and the Human Frontier Science Program.
