Prof. John Carter

Research Area: Experimental and theoretical nuclear structure physics.


Prof. Barry Cole

Nuclear structure calculations, especially for medium mass nuclei. Of particular interest is the possiblity of the two-proton decay mode of proton-rich nuclei.

Prof. Tom Nam

Dr. Iyabo Usman

My work entails performing nuclear physics experiments using light particle beams available at iThemba LABS SSC cyclotron in conjunction with the state-of-the-art K600 Magnetic Spectrometer, analyze the data obtained with sophisticated nuclear models/theories and supervise postgraduate students.
