Biography: 

Raymond Juzaitis has twenty-eight years of experience in the management and execution of National Security R&D programs at the Department of Energy National Laboratories. Early focus in computational physics paved the way for a broad-based technical career that included nuclear weapons design, development, testing, and evaluation. Career assignments included two changes of station in senior advisory positions in the U.S. government: at the Pentagon (DoD), as well as at Defense Programs in DOE. Last sixteen years devoted to technical/line and program management with increasing levels of responsibility, and covering the full breadth of nuclear weapon program activities. In the mid- to late-1990's, as Division Leader, led the transition in technical culture of nuclear weapon design from a nuclear-test- based paradigm to a simulation-based paradigm (Science-Based Stockpile Stewardship). Senior management experience (Associate Director) at two nuclear weapons laboratories: Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL). During the last several years, programmatic focus shifted to Non-Proliferation and Counter-Terrorism/Homeland Security programs. Educational background includes B.S.E. in Chemical Engineering (Princeton University), and M.E. and Ph.D. in Nuclear Engineering (University of Virginia).
