OAK RIDGE, Tenn., April 1, 1997 — Craig Little of the Department of Energy's (DOE) Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) has been appointed to the Environmental Pathway Modeling Working Group of the Health Physics Society Standards Committee.

The purpose of this group is to guide selection, testing and use of computer software models for calculating dose and risk from radionuclides released into the environment. The group will help determine potential risks to nearby individuals and collective populations.

Little joined ORNL in 1976, and he is currently section head of the Life Sciences Division's Environmental Technology Section located in Grand Junction, Colo.

He received a bachelor's degree in biology from McPherson (Kan.) College. He earned a master's degree in radiation biology and a doctorate in radioecology from Colorado State University.

He lives in Grand Junction with his wife, Joanna, and his two children, Jake and Shea.

ORNL, one of DOE's multiprogram national research and development facilities, is managed by Lockheed Martin Energy Research Corporation.
