Dr. Glenn A. Fox is the Principal Associate Director (PAD) for the Physical and Life Sciences Directorate (PLS) at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL). Glenn joined the research staff at LLNL in 1992, working on and leading numerous synthesis chemistry projects. He has since held a variety of key positions at the Laboratory, including Deputy Division Leader for science and technology (S&T) for the Chemistry and Materials Science Directorate from 1999 to 2002; Director of the Forensic Science Center (FSC) from 2002 to 2006; Deputy Associate Director of S&T for the Chemistry, Materials, Earth, and Life Sciences Directorate from 2006 to 2007; and Chemical Sciences Division Leader from 2008 to 2013. As director of the FSC, he positioned the center as a “hub laboratory” for LLNL programs and federal agencies such as the Federal Bureau of Investigation and a recognized leader in the forensic science of weapons of mass destruction. 

Glenn assumed his current role in 2013. In this position, he leads a talented team of roughly 1400 technical and support staff that works together to solve complex national security challenges and advance the scientific foundations of the Laboratory in a wide range of areas, including atmospheric, earth, and energy; biology and biotechnology; materials science; nuclear and chemical science; and physics. Since then, he has overseen expansion into newer mission spaces, such as materials for energy and quantum computing, and the formation of new LLNL centers to focus innovation and external engagement, such as the High Energy Density Science Center, Laboratory for Energy Applications for the Future, Space Science Institute, and Livermore Center for Quantum Science.
