R&D Staff

Bio

Dr. Jennifer Ladd-Lively is a R&D staff member in the Nuclear Security and Isotope Technology Division. Jennifer received her B.S. in chemical engineering from Tennessee Technological University in 2002 and a M.S. and Ph.D. in chemical engineering from the University of Tennessee in 2004 and 2013, respectively. Jennifer is the ORNL point of contact for the NNSA Office of Defense Nuclear Nonproliferation Research and Development (DNN R&D) Material Production Detection (MPD) Team and the DHS/DNDO National Technical Nuclear Forensics Center (NTNFC). She has uranium processing experience and has worked in most areas of the nuclear fuel cycle. Additionally, she has coordinated and implemented large-scale, multi-laboratory projects and field campaigns. Jennifer served three years (2010–2013) as technical advisor for the Signatures and Observables program of DNN R&D in Washington, DC. She has been at ORNL since 2004.
