Susan S. Voss

Susan S. Voss is the President of the Global Nuclear Network Analysis, LLC, a small Woman-Owned engineering firm located in Los Alamos, NM. Ms Voss, and Edward Rodriguez, created the company in January 2008 after a long and diverse carreer at Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL). Susan was employed by LANL for over 22 years, serving as a Technical Staff Member and Project Leader where she fostered numerous projects on nuclear power and the nuclear fuel cycle, nuclear nonproliferation, counter-proliferation and arms controls for the Department of State, Department of Energy, Department of Defense, Department of Homeland Security and other governmental agencies. One of her primary areas of expertise is the Russian nuclear complex and its impact on international nonproliferation and nuclear power programs.
 
Prior to her career at Los Alamos National Laboratory, Susan worked for the Air Force Weapons Laboratory in Albuquerque on space nuclear power. Susan graduated from the University of New Mexico with a BS and MS in Nuclear Engineering in 1985.
 
Her current projects include consulting for the Hyperion Power Generation company in the design of their small, efficient nuclear power source, the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis in assessing nuclear power, and the Madrona Institute in applying complexity theory to nuclear arms reductions.

Edward A. Rodriguez

Edward A. Rodriguez is a registered professional engineer with 33 years of structural and mechanical engineering expertise, having extensive experience with the US Nuclear Weapons Program, US Navy Submarine Nuclear Propulsion Program, and DOE nuclear reactor programs.  His demonstrated proficiency in diverse scientific and engineering fields, include advanced structural dynamics, blast load structural design, and fatigue and fracture mechanics.
 
Prior to establishing Global Nuclear Network Analysis, LLC with Ms Susan Voss in 2008, Ed had worked for the Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) since 1991. At LANL he held technical leadership positions including Director for Weapons Engineering Technology Division.  From 1977 to 1991, Mr Rodriguez was employed by General Dynamics, Electric Boat Division, in Groton, CT where he worked on the design of the US Navy's Trident ballistic-missile nuclear submarine. Ed was lead engineer for the design and analysis of the steam-plant, reactor-plant, and main sea water pressure components.
 
Ed's current projects include providing technical expertise to several organizations in structural dynamics response of containments subjected to gaseous detonations, as well as conventional high-explosive detonations, including the development of theoretical, and modeling and simulation of highly non-linear transient structural response.  He is a recognized expert within the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) and the Pressure Vessel Research Council (PVRC) for leading the effort with the Impulsively Loaded Vessel Design Guidance, which has recently been adopted as a Code Case for Section VIII, Division 3.  Structural design rules and guidance on methodologies for engineering assessments was published in two seminal reports for the Welding Research Council.
