Primary office:

Dr. Barrett received his BS in Physics at KU in 1961. He went on to obtain a Ph.D. in Physics from Stanford University in 1967. After post-doctoral research associate positions at the Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel and at the University of Pittsburgh, Dr. Barrett joined the faculty at the University of Arizona as an Assistant Professor in September 1970. In 1976 he was promoted to Professor of Physics at the University of Arizona. His research interest centers on nuclear-structure theory, mainly on microscopic theories of nuclear structure utilizing the large-basis, no-core shell-model approach and the quantum many-body theory of effective interactions and operators. Other investigations include the microscopic interpretation of the Interacting Boson Model for nuclear collective motion and its applications and extensions.
