current employment

Kennedy Reed has written more than 100 articles on atomic collisions in high temperature plasmas, and has regularly presented at national and international conferences. He has done considerable work on the problem of minority under-representation in physics, including working with the human resources department at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory on a number of programs related to the recruitment and education of minority scientists. He frequently presents seminars and discusses graduate studies and careers with students at historically black colleges and universities and is a co-founder of the National Physical Science Consortium, which provides graduate fellowships for women and minority students. He was NSBP President, 1990-1992..

Kennedy Reed, winner of the 1997 International Center for Theoretical Physics' Visiting Scholar Award. Runs Research Collaborations Program for Historically Black Colleges and Universities and Minority Institutions at LLNL. Dr. Reed was recently elected Fellows of the American Physical Society for his efforts to promote collaboration in atomic, molecular, and optical physics among U.S. European, and African laboratories, and for his success in organizing international workshops to showcase these collaborations
