Enjoying dinner in Ann ArborThis is the home of Sean M. McDaniel. This website hosts material that I want to share with the greater world, and serves as my electronic beacon for colleagues and friends that want to get in touch. I’m an experimental nuclear physicist currently doing research at the National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory (NSCL) following my successful Ph.D. defense this June, 2011. For additional information about my work, see Science. My resume and CV are uploaded under Resume.

Eventually, I intend to post information about my hobbies and artistic work (writing, music, et cetra). This website, however, is not a blog, and will not be updated on a regular basis.

You can send me an email here. I am also accessible through popular social networking services like LinkedIn, Facebook (friends only), and Twitter (I don’t tweet; my account is mainly for online visibility).


There are several folks named Sean McDaniel on the web.  An incomplete list:

You can contact them through their respective websites.

Voyager 1, as of 2011, has traveled well beyond our solar system; it takes 16.1 hours for its radio signals (traveling at the speed of light) to reach Earth. Mission termination is expected around 2020. For more information see the Wikipedia article.
