Dr. Celliers' doctoral thesis work examined laser driven shock waves in fused silica. In 1989 following his post-doctoral appointment, he returned to the University of British Columbia as a research associate to continue research on laser-driven shock waves. From 1992 to 1994 he worked for an industrial firm developing spectrometers for plasma-based analytical instrumentation. In 1994, Dr. Celliers joined Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory as a staff scientist, where he has worked on a variety of projects including applications of x-ray lasers for plasma probing, laser-produced x-ray sources for lithography, and developing optical diagnostic techniques for biomedical applications of lasers. Recent research includes laser-driven shock for equation-of-state measurements and other applications in the inertial-confinement program.
