Kristin A. Bennett, Ph.D., Joins The Implementation Group

Washington, DC | Posted on September 17th, 2008

"Dr. Bennett's experience spans the world of science, from laboratory to national policy," said H. Stewart "Stu" Van Scoyoc, President of both The Implementation Group (TIG) and Van Scoyoc Associates Inc., a Washington government affairs company.
"Not only is Dr. Bennett an accomplished scientist in her own right, she has demonstrated the initiative to start and complete complex projects, as well as that rare skill of helping others develop their own projects to the fullest extent," Mr. Van Scoyoc said.
"Adding Dr. Bennett to the staff gives TIG a whole new set of skills to offer clients in emerging fields like biomedical research, health care, weapons technology, and energy production and conservation," he said.
Dr. Bennett, who will be a Vice President at TIG, most recently worked as a senior Program Manager for the Department of Energy's Office of Science for six years. For a decade before that, she worked at the Los Alamos National Laboratory, advancing from postdoctoral fellow to the senior management of several projects.
At Los Alamos National Laboratory, Dr. Bennett led the design, construction, and operations of HIPPO, a large state-of-the art machine to study materials by bombarding them with high-energy neutrons. HIPPO stands for High Pressure Preferred Orientation (neutron diffractometer).
Her success at Los Alamos brought her to the attention of the Department of Energy, where she managed development of Nanoscale Science Research Centers at Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee, Argonne National Laboratory in Illinois, and Brookhaven National Laboratory in New York.
In addition, Dr. Bennett managed the design and construction of advanced sensing instruments used in free-electron laser science.
She has published over 50 papers and conference proceedings on such topics as metal matrix composites, thin films, advanced engineering alloys, and artificial and naturally occurring materials.
Dr. Bennett earned her Ph.D. from the University of California at Berkeley in Geology and her Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from Trinity College. She was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the GeoForschungsZentrum in Potsdam, Germany, 1994-1995, and at Los Alamos National Laboratory, 1995-1997.
