Peter B. Littlewood is the Director of Argonne National Laboratory, one of the nation’s largest science and engineering research centers, and a Professor of Physics in the James Franck Institute at the University of Chicago. Dr. Littlewood came to Argonne in 2011 after being appointed Associate Laboratory Director of Argonne's Physical Sciences and Engineering directorate, which focuses on discovery science across a broad range of disciplines, and on creating and understanding new materials and chemistries that address the grand challenges in energy and the environment.
Dr. Mark Peters is the Deputy Laboratory Director for Programs at Argonne National Laboratory. He is responsible for the management and integration of the Laboratory’s science and technology portfolio, strategic planning, Laboratory Directed Research and Development (LDRD) program, and technology development and commercialization. Dr. Peters also serves as a senior advisor to the Department of Energy on nuclear energy technologies and research and development programs, and nuclear waste policy. As a recognized expert in nuclear fuel cycle technologies and nuclear waste management, Dr. Peters is called upon frequently to provide expert testimony to Congress and to advise in formulation of policies for nuclear fuel cycles, nonproliferation, and nuclear waste disposal.
Paul K. Kearns is Deputy Laboratory Director for Operations and Chief Operations Officer for the U.S. Department of Energy's Argonne National Laboratory. He brings nearly three decades of management experience to the position, as well as a strong background in science and engineering.
Alfred P. Sattelberger is Associate Laboratory Director for Energy Engineering and Systems Analysis (EESA). Sattelberger oversees Argonne’s programs in energy research—including energy storage, renewable energy, energy efficiency and nuclear energy—and national security.
Rick Stevens is Associate Laboratory Director for Computing, Environment and Life Sciences (CELS). Stevens oversees a research program that connects computing to several areas of inquiry, and heads Argonne's research initiatives for both exascale computing and computational biology. He is a professor in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Chicago, a Senior Fellow of the Computation Institute, and a Senior Fellow of the Institute for Genomics and Systems Biology.
