Dwight A Clayton

Research Operations Manager

Bio

Dwight A. Clayton is the Research Operations Manager for the Electrical and Electronics Systems Research Division (EESRD) at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), Oak Ridge Tennessee. The mission of the Electrical and Electronics Systems Research Division is to perform research that translate the science and engineering of measurement, instrumentation, and electric machines into technology solutions to ensure America’s security and prosperity by addressing nuclear, environmental, and energy challenges. Dwight joined ORNL in 1983 as a development staff member in the Instrumentation and Controls Division. In 1994, Dwight was named leader of the Electronic and Embedded Systems Group (EESG). During his time as the group leader (1994-2014), the innovative efforts of the EESG resulted in the receipt of four R&D 100 awards.
