Radiation Laboratory faculty among those honored with undergraduate and teaching awards

Laura Mortlock-McMinn

Sylwia Ptasinska of the Radiation Laboratory and Physics departments is among the twenty University of Notre Dame faculty members that have received the Rev. Edmund P.Joyce, C.S.C., Awards for Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching. 

The Joyce Awards, established in 2007, are supported by a gift from the late Father Joyce’s classmates of Notre Dame’s Class of 1937. They honor faculty members who have had a profound influence on undergraduate students through sustained exemplary teaching, and, in particular, recognize professors who create environments that stimulate significant student learning, elevate students to a new level of intellectual engagement and foster students’ ability to express themselves effectively within their disciplines. …

NDRL Graduate Student Wins DOE Award

NDRL Graduate Student Wins DOE Award

Laura Mortlock-McMinn

Patricia Huestis has won an award from the DOE Office of Science Graduate Student Research (SCGSR) Program. This supplemental award is given to outstanding U.S. graduate students to pursue part of their graduate thesis research at a DOE laboratory. Patricia will spend the summer of 2019 working at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory under the guidance of Drs. Sue Clark and Greg Kimmel. She will be helping to develop and use a RADAFM device for examining the modification of interfaces during in situ radiolysis. This device is a combination of an x-ray or electron source with an atomic force microscope (AFM). Patricia will be studying the radiolysis of aluminum hydroxide and oxyhydroxide compounds for a better understanding of their interactions with aqueous environments pertinent to the cleanup of the radioactive waste tanks at the Hanford Washington site.…
