The deputy director partners with the director to run all aspects of the government-owned, university-operated laboratory and performs several critical functions. One of the most important aspects of the job is communicating with SLAC' international collaborators.
Loew brings to the position 40 years of experience at SLAC encompassing almost all aspects of the laboratory. He was instrumental in the construction and commissioning of SLAC's linear accelerator, and has contributed continuously to its evolution from a 16 GeV electron accelerator to its present 50 GeV incarnation capable of accelerating positrons and polarized electrons.
Internationally renowned as an accelerator scientist, Loew is also an experienced manager. He was Technical Division deputy director at SLAC for 21 years and Technical Division assistant director for technical support for seven years. He has served all three SLAC directors as charge d'affaires, overseeing the visits of dignitaries and providing a critical point of contact with foreign governments.
