Dr. Jamie L. Weaver is a Research Chemist in the Material Measurement Laboratory at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). She is the instrument scientist for Neutron Depth Profiling. Her research focus areas are light element (Li, B, N, He, and Cl) metrology and solid-state materials resilience. Throughout her career, Dr. Weaver has made contributions in the fields of Li-ion batteries, nuclear energy, glass science, and materials durability. Her expertise in these areas focus on quantification of hard-to-detect elements under static and dynamic conditions; data that is used to model a material’s service life and durability. Dr. Weaver collaborates with researchers in industry, other agencies (e.g., DOE, Smithsonian Institution, USGS), and academia and routinely publishes in peer-reviewed journals. She is a member of the American Ceramic Society and the current (2023) Chair of the Art, Archeology, and Conservation Sciences Division. She has been a non-funded Guest Research Fellow at the Smithsonian Institution since 2020.
