A recent edition of the Infrastructure Resilience Research Group Journal featured an article written by PNNL researchers Rob Siefken and Jake Burns about “Design Basis Threat and the Low Threat Environment.”
As a physicist at PNNL, Jon Burnett’s work is about developing instruments to detect ultra-trace radionuclide signatures, analyze samples from around the world to look for evidence of nuclear explosions, and then interpret that information.
Beginning in 2021, PNNL chemical physicist Bruce Kay begins a three-year term as an AVS trustee, part of a six-member committee responsible for overseeing the administration of student scholarships and major society awards.
This committee represents the country’s soil science community in the International Union of Soil Sciences, advises The National Academies, and communicates with professional societies and organizations.
Josef "Pepa" Matyas, a materials scientist in PNNL’s Nuclear Sciences Division, has been elected a fellow of the American Ceramic Society (ACerS). He will be recognized at the ACerS annual meeting on September 30, 2019, in Portland, Ore.
