Welcome to Joe Osborn’s personal webpage!
I am currently a research scientist at Brookhaven National Laboratory who works in computational physics. I work as a software scientist mostly in high-energy nuclear and particle physics, developing workflow software for experiments to do data analysis and reduction. I enjoy all things combining software and science!
My research is primarily focused on studying one of four fundamental forces, the strong force, responsible for binding protons, neutrons, and their constituents together. The proton is comprised of other particles, called quarks and gluons, and this research aims to understand the interactions of these particles.
I also research methods for developing and writing common data reduction software for experiments, and work on the implementation of common software. These software initiatives enable science, like the above (and much more!), to be performed at particle accelerator facilities across the globe.
