Raymond G. Wymer is former director of the Chemical Technology Division, Oak Ridge National Laboratory and is now a consultant for the laboratory, DOE, and its contractors on all aspects of nuclear fuel and radioactive waste management. He is an associate member of the National Academies and is a member of the National Academies Board on Nuclear and Radiation Studies. He served on a United Nations Special Commission team to Iraq in the mid 1990s evaluating Iraq’s uranium enrichment capability by chemical exchange. He is coauthor of a book Chemistry in Nuclear Technology and co-edited a book on Light Water Reactor Fuel Reprocessing. He was an editor of the journal Radiochimica Acta for more than 10 years until his retirement. Dr. Wymer is an adjunct professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Vanderbilt University. He has received recognition for his contributions in the nuclear area, including the Robert E. Wilson Award in Nuclear Chemical Engineering from AIChE for outstanding work on the nuclear fuel cycle. He received a B.A. from Memphis State University and an M.A. and a Ph.D from Vanderbilt University.

Jasmina Vujic is professor and chair in the Department of Nuclear Engineering at the University of California at Berkeley (UCB). She is also a director of an interdepartmental cutting-edge computing facility that provides computing services for advanced research and teaching to the College of Engineering departments at UCB. Before joining the Berkeley faculty, she worked at Argonne National Laboratory. Dr. Vujic is an internationally recognized expert in the advanced method development for nuclear reactor analysis and design, as well as for medical applications of radiation. Her fields of specialization also include radiation detection and measurement, nuclear reactor physics, neutron and photon transport, radiation protections, and engineering aspects of medical imaging and cancer therapy. Her general geometry collision probability code GTRAN2 has been licensed to General Electric and Toshiba. Also, the GTRAN2 code was chosen by DOE in 1991 as the computational methodology for assembly design of the modular high-temperature gas-cooled reactor core for tritium production. Dr. Vujic and a colleague developed a program in bionuclear and radiological physics for students in the bioengineering program. She has worked on diverse problems ranging from reactor core design to analysis of the neutronic behavior of fissile materials in geologic repositories, to modeling radiation transport for medical diagnostics in boron neutron capture therapy and for nuclear medicine imaging. She is holder of one U.S. patent and author of a book and 240 technical publications, including over 60 papers published in leading archival journals, and several awarded papers. She has been consulting for General Electric, Transware, VeriTainer, Aerotest Operations, and other companies. Dr. Vujic received the Prytanean Faculty Award and several other awards including an American Nuclear Society
