Argonne Experts: J. Roglans-Ribas

Dr. Roglans-Ribas is the Director of the Nuclear Engineering (NE) Division at Argonne National Laboratory. He is a senior nuclear engineer and has worked at Argonne since 1987. He is responsible for overseeing the Division operations and providing programmatic leadership and strategic planning. The Division is dedicated to nuclear technology development including advanced reactors and fuel cycles, materials research, nonproliferation and national security, and environmental management programs. The Division’s extensive capabilities in modeling and simulation are applied in the development of diverse engineering systems and the optimization of their performance.

Dr. Roglans-Ribas has been the Argonne Program Director for the NNSA’s Material Management and Minimization-Reactor Conversion program. The program’s mission is to minimize, and to the extent possible eliminate, the use of Highly Enriched Uranium (HEU) in civil applications by converting research and test reactors to the use of low-enriched uranium (LEU) fuel and targets for the production of medical isotopes. Previous assignments include Associate Director of Argonne’s Advanced Fuel Cycle Initiative Program, Technical Director of the International Expert Group for the development of assessment methodologies for proliferation resistance and physical protection of Generation IV nuclear energy systems, co-chair of the Evaluation Methodology Group during the Generation IV nuclear energy systems Technology Roadmap, and U.S. system integration manager and co-chair of the Generation IV International Forum Steering Committee for the Sodium Fast Reactor (SFR).
