Rob Dimeo

Rob Dimeo portrait

Rob Dimeo is the director of the NIST Center for Neutron Research (NCNR). He finds himself most at home at NIST when doing one of three things: talking with NCNR neutron users about their science, trying not to get caught doodling at management meetings, and doing his best not to get injured playing in the annual NIST employees softball tournament. When not at work Rob enjoys getting shot by his son on the paintball field, cruising in a pontoon boat on Deep Creek Lake with his wife and kids, and trying to convince his daughter that he CAN actually help her with her chemistry and physics homework.
