Name: Susan Seestrom, Ph. D.
Title: Associate Laboratories Director, Advanced Science &
Technology and Chief Research Officer
Company: Sandia National Laboratories
Dr. Susan Seestrom spent more than 30 years at Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL), first arriving as a graduate student while pursuing her doctorate in experimental nuclear physics at the University of Minnesota. Susan subsequently joined Los Alamos as a Director’s Fellow and continued as a scientific staff member. Her research in nuclear physics ranges from studies of nuclear structure with medium energy probes to studies of the weak interaction using neutrons. Susan served in several leadership positions at LANL, including Associate Laboratory Director (ALD) for Experimental Physical Science and the first woman named the ALD for the Weapons Physics Directorate. She was also the first woman to chair DOE’s Nuclear Science Advisory Committee and the National Science Foundation. She is now the Associate Laboratories Director for Advanced Science and Technology and Chief Research Officer at Sandia National Laboratories. Susan was recently named a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) for her pathbreaking work in nuclear physics, especially using ultracold neutrons.
