The ESH and Infrastructure Team reports into the Business Manager for the Science Directorate. We interface regularly with the directorate staff, the ALD, students and post docs on safety and building related issues.
If not in our offices, we are usually in the field and in the labs. The organizational structure of the team is represented below with an introduction to each member and their key areas of responsibility.
Nimmi manages infrastructure and safety functions within the Science Directorate. She is the lead ESH Safety Coordinator for Science. She manages the ESH team and responsible for overseeing work activities for various areas in the directorate. She develops and manages work planning and control processes within the directorate in conjunction with her team.
Nimmi also supports the PSLB project as the Science Liaison. In this role she gathers requirements from the scientific community and ensures that these requirements are being translated into the building design and structure.
Sandy is the primary ESH contact for the LUX-ZEPLIN (LZ) efforts in B620 and B621 and is also the building manager for these areas. In his role as Building Manager, he coordinates between the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST) and LZ projects to ensure building activities are aligned with these two key experimental programs.
Sandy also manages safety oversight for former PPA buildings in the Research Yard and B033. Sandy is the back-up support for the Super Cryogenic Dark Matter (SCDMS) project and works closely with Norm Picker.
Brooke is the Safety Coordinator and Building Manager for activities in B 040 and B 040A as well as the Photon Science Laboratory Building (PSLB) 057, currently under construction. Scheduled to open its doors in the summer of 2018, the new building will enable a range of synthesis and characterization capabilities, simulation, theory, and modeling in support of the study of ultrafast physical, chemical, and biological processes and materials synthesis.
Brooke is leading the Transition to Operations Team to ensure a seamless handoff of responsibility from the project to the operating team and is involved in reviewing the final design as well as being part of the construction team. She will also work closely with the SLAC Facilities & Operations group. on a new initiative to develop a Building Management Program that promotes scientific collaboration and enables complete utilization of SLAC’s cutting-edge facilities.
Emily is matrixed to the Science Directorate (SD) Infrastructure team to support and assist with Building as well as ESH lab and management issues. She is the ESH point of contact and building manager for B 006 and the back up support for 40 and 40A.
Emily has been working at SLAC and the ES&H Division since 2010. Emily supports the Science Directorate with her strong operations experience.
She also develops and manages the content on the Science Directorate Infrastructure website.
Patrick Frank supports the Science Directorate as a resource with considerable experience in Chemistry and Synthesis. He is a member of the scientific staff at SSRL and carries out independent research, manages the campus laboratories of Prof. Keith Hodgson and Prof. Britt Hedman, and supervises the management staff of the Sample Preparation Laboratories (SPLs) at SSRL and LCLS.
Pat has been instrumental in the development of Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) for operations within SLAC's inert atmosphere glove boxes including the safe handling of liquid nitrogen, for various laboratory Schlenk line operations, and for the safe dehazardization of waste acids, alkalis, cyanide, and Piranha solution. He also oversees the chemical and procedural safety of experimental SOPs in use by the visiting researcher community and is a member of the team evaluating chemical safety in SLAC staff research laboratories.
Pat is available to help you with any questions or concerns you might have related to safety of chemicals and materials as well as experiments involving their use and disposal.
Marc E. Welch
ext 3754 Mobile Phone:408-710-2566
Marc Welch has been assigned to the Science Directorate as a Laser Mentor. In this capacity, Marc is available to assist with introductory training for new students operating lasers, developing teaching/operational materials to help with lab operations, set up of new lasers and conducting surveys of laser operational needs and practices within the labs.
Marc is part of the Laser Science and Technology (LST) division of the LCLS, which provides operational support for laser systems used in the LCLS photoinjector and experimental end stations. LST provides technical support for laser operations in the Accelerator Directorate (AD), Science Directorate, Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Lightsource (SSRL), and various research groups at Stanford and other national laboratories (LBL, ANL, LANL).
