Jabez McClelland

portrait of Jabez McClelland

Jabez McClelland received his B.A. in physics and music from Wesleyan University and his Ph.D. in physics from the University of Texas at Austin. He started as a postdoc in the Electron Physics Group at NIST in 1984 and has been there ever since—a NIST lifer, as it were. His work has covered a wide range of topics, from spin-polarized electron scattering and laser-excited atoms to laser-cooling-based nanotechnology, and most recently, neuromorphic computing.
