Kevin J. Tibbetts
Dr. Kevin Tibbetts is a technical staff member in the Advanced Materials and Microsystems Group at Lincoln Laboratory. Tibbetts’ research focuses on material property prediction through theoretical computations as part of a program to integrate artificial intelligence, theory, and experimental synthesis to expediate the discovery of new materials. Tibbetts also spent several years in Lincoln Laboratory’s Systems Analysis Group developing models for the Air Force Red Team.
Before enrolling in graduate school, Tibbetts worked as an analyst for Photon Research Associates focusing on analysis of various types of sensor data. After graduate school, Tibbetts worked as a consultant for Keystone Strategy on a wide variety of data analysis projects. Tibbetts also spent three years in the U.S. Army as a combat engineer after high school.
Tibbetts holds a BS degree in engineering physics from the University of Maine and a PhD degree in materials science from MIT. His graduate work focused on density functional theory modeling of battery materials, with a concentration in chalcogenide nanotubes for use as high-rate electrodes.
