Consolidated Nuclear Security LLC has chosen four employees for its Fellows Program, one from the Pantex Plant in Amarillo, Texas, and three from the Y-12 National Security Complex in Oak Ridge.
The program recognizes technical staff members at Pantex and Y-12 who achieved status as a national or international expert in their field, a press release said. Each fellow serves a renewable two-year term acting as the technical expert in their competency area and mentor to other staff.
Those chosen are Pantex Component Analysis/Surveillance Fellow Lorelei Woods, Uranium Fellow Glenn Pfennigwerth, Metallurgy Fellow Alan Moore, and Y-12 Component Analysis/Surveillance Fellow Vincent Lamberti.
Woods began at Pantex in 1983 and holds an A.S. in electronics, as well as a B.S. and M.S. in chemistry, the press release said. With more than 30 years at Y-12, Pfennigwerth holds a B.S. in chemistry and a M.S. in chemical engineering. Moore also has worked at Y-12 for more than 30 years and holds a B.S. in metallurgical engineering and a M.S. in industrial engineering. Lamberti joined Y-12 in 2001 and holds a Ph.D. and an M.S. degree in physical chemistry and an M.S. in computer science and numerical computation. Each fellow will continue to support mission work at the sites, while acting as mentors to other staff, the press release said.
“The Fellows Program is essential to ensuring technical excellence across CNS through technology innovation,” said Ashley Stowe, former Y-12 Googin Fellow and program manager for the CNS Fellows Program. “Fellows are the cornerstone of mentorship and set the example for others.”
In addition to these four fellows, four more will be named in 2018. Potential upcoming fellows could be named in explosives, lithium/special nuclear material, advanced manufacturing, electromagnetic effects, and nonproliferation.
Consolidated Nuclear Security LLC operates the Pantex Plant in Amarillo, Texas, and the Y-12 National Security Complex in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, under a single contract for the National Nuclear Security Administration.
More information will be added as it becomes available.
