Biographical Note

Claus Rode joined Jefferson Lab in 1986 from Fermi National Accelerator Lab, where he was the senior cryogenic engineer for the Tevatron construction project. At Jefferson Lab, he was responsible for designing and building the CEBAF Central Helium Liquifier. He then became the deputy head of the Engineering Division and the deputy CEBAF project manager in 1987. Starting in 1989, he served as the deputy associate director for the Accelerator Division and the associate project manager as the accelerator was being constructed, commissioned and operated. He was appointed the 12 GeV Project Leader in 1998 and the following year he also was named the senior team leader for the Spallation Neutron Source (SNS) project at Jefferson Lab. Rode was subsequently the project manager for the $338 million 12 GeV upgrade of the CEBAF accelerator, increasing the energy and expanding the scientific benefits of CEBAF.

In July, 2016, Jefferson Lab held a symposium titled: Project Highlights from 50 Years in the DOE Office of Science: A scientific symposium in honor of Claus Rode. The symposium highlighted a selection of high-profile projects completed in the Department of Energy's Office of Science over the past 50 years. The character and execution of scientific projects evolved significantly during this time.

Rode received a BSEE from University of Illinois in 1968, an M.S. in Physics from the University of Illinois in 1969 and a Professional Degree in EE from the Illinois Institute of Technology in 1972. He is a licensed Professional Engineer and Project Management Professional. He has been a member of Machine Advisory Committees for HERA, LHC and ILC.

Rode is presently enjoying his retirement.
