Deputy Instrument Systems Engineer for ATLAS
Phil Luers has worked on ATLAS since 2009, and was responsible for the overall electrical systems design -- defining how parts of the instrument work together to measure photon time-of-flight. He has worked on flight missions at Goddard for more than 25 years, designing and testing electronics on spacecrafts and instruments for seven different missions before ATLAS. Phil has lived in Maryland all his life and even went to school here, earning degrees from the University of Maryland and Johns Hopkins University. He enjoys sailing, power boating and homebrewing.
