Allison Bennett Irion is a systems engineer, with a focus on nuclear non-proliferation and supply chain security. Allison is the chair of the Advanced Supply Chain Analytics (ASCA) team, which is a joint initiative between Strategic Security Sciences (S3) and Decision and Infrastructure Sciences (DIS) on end-to-end supply chain solutions that assure the supply of materials critical to U.S. strategic interests and deny the supply of proliferation-sensitive goods to adversaries.
Greg Krumdick is the Director of Argonne National Laboratory’s Applied Materials division. Previously, he managed Argonne’s Materials Engineering Research Facility (MERF). He has been the principal investigator and lead engineer on numerous industrial process scale-up projects. Krumdick holds numerous patents and has earned three R&D 100 awards and a Federal Laboratory Consortium award for technology transfer.
Kris Pupek is the Group Leader for Process R&D and Scale Up in Argonne National Laboratory’s Applied Materials division. The group evaluates emerging synthesis techniques and develops scalable processes for manufacturing of advanced materials including organic, inorganic, polymeric and nanomaterials to support basic research and industrial evaluation.
Jeff Spangenberger manages the Materials Recycling Group in Argonne National Laboratory’s Applied Materials division. His group works to solve material separation, recovery, and recycling challenges resulting in cost effective and environmentally sustainable processes resulting in commercialized plants.
Venkat Srinivasan is the director of the Argonne Collaborative Center for Energy Storage Science (ACCESS) and deputy director of the Joint Center for Energy Storage Research (JCESR, the battery “Hub”). He is a former staff scientist at Lawrence Berkeley National Lab. His research interest is in developing next-generation batteries for use in vehicle and grid applications, among other things. Dr. Srinivasan and his research group develop continuum-based models for battery materials and combine them with experimental characterization to help design new materials, electrodes, and devices.
