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.…
