Dennis Wayne Sivers, Physicist and Chairman at the Portland Physics Institute and D.W. Sivers Co. has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Executives for dedication, achievements, and leadership in physics.

Dr. Sivers became involved in his profession as his main goal during his studies was to understand the fundamental laws of nature. A graduate of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, he earned a Bachelor of Science in physics in 1966. Four years later, he received a Doctor of Philosophy in theoretical physics from the University of California, Berkeley. Now a distinguished member of the scientific community, he has conducted groundbreaking research regarding seminal calculations in perturbative quantum chromodynamics. Today, he holds membership with the National Forum, the National Association Industrial and Office Properties and the American Physical Society.

At the start of his illustrious career, Dr. Sivers worked as a physicist for the Argonne National Laboratory in Illinois from 1976 to 1991. During the engagement, he also served as president and chief executive officer for the Portland Physics Institute until 2019. Since then, he has served as a physicist to the aforementioned institute and has worked as an adjunct professor at the University of Michigan since 1997. Additionally, Dr. Sivers has flourished as the head real estate developer, chairman and owner of D.W. Sivers Co., which has been in the Sivers family dating back to 1940. As chairman of the board, Dr. Sivers’ executive responsibilities concern financing the movie theater part of their portfolio.

Looking back on his exceptional career, Dr. Sivers notes the highlight of his career was being able to give an explanation for single symmetries and scattering experiments. Notably, in his work, he was responsible for discovering measurements that depend on the orientation of the proton spin in scattering experiments, which was later named the “Sivers Effect.” In the coming years, Dr. Sivers would like to direct his focus to a paper on which he called, “The Strong Conjunctor of the Confinement of Color in Quantum.” It is an important facet of what nuclear physics is and allows scientists to understand evolution and many things are produced. He also wants to fulfill his obligations in business. Today, he is working on an explanation for “Quantum Chromodynamics,” which is a challenge that he believes people have been approaching incorrectly. Outside of his primary endeavors, Dr. Sivers enjoys exercising, long walks, reading and discussing politics in his spare time.
