Dr. Amanda K. Petford-Long is the Chair of the Chief Research Officer Council (CROC) at Argonne National Laboratory. In this role, she serves as Argonne’s representative on the National Lab Chief Research Officer group, and also leads the CROC council, whose roles include advising Argonne leadership on scientific and programmatic opportunities and issues, promoting a lab-wide view of Argonne with a strong focus on increasing synergies across the laboratory, and developing initiatives that promote Argonne’s core values.
John F. Mitchell is an Argonne Distinguished Fellow and Interim Division Director of the Materials Science Division at Argonne National Laboratory. He received his A.B. from Cornell University in 1987 and his Ph.D. from the University of Chicago in 1993 for theoretical studies of defect structures and order-disorder transitions of early transition metal chalcogenides. His current research emphasizes strategic synthesis, crystal growth, and structural studies of correlated electron transition metal oxides and chalcogenides using neutron and X-ray scattering.
Beverly Marzec joined the Materials Science Division in January 2012. In her current role, she is responsible for the administrative and operational functions of the division, supports and oversees the day-to-day activities and performance, and provides interface between laboratory organizations.
