DOE Fellows from the DOE-FIU Science and Technology Workforce Development Program at the Applied Research Center (ARC) participated in the Waste Management 2016 Conference in Phoenix, Arizona, from March 6 through March 10, 2016. Twenty (20) DOE Fellows had the opportunity to present technical posters on their DOE-EM research that they have performed at FIU’s ARC and during their summer internships at DOE sites, national laboratories, and site contractors during Session 31 (Student Poster Competition: The Next Generation – Industry Leaders of Tomorrow).

The student posters included:

During the conference, DOE Fellow Yoel Rotterman presented a professional poster on “DOE Climate Change Vulnerability and Adaption Planning” during Session 71 (Environmental Remediation Topic – A Posters: Environmental Remediation Analysis, Technology and Treatment Systems). DOE Fellow Robert Lapierre presented during professional session 81, on “Characterization of U(VI)-Bearing Precipitates Produced by Ammonia Gas Injection Technology for Unsaturated Sediments” and DOE Fellow Ryan Sheffield presented during professional session 95 on “Development of Inspection Tools for the AY-102 Double-shell Tank at the Hanford DOE Site.” Also, DOE Fellow Christine Wipfli participated as a panelist in Session 42 (Graduating Scientists and Engineers: Wants and Needs Does it Differ Between Countries?) and as a panel reporter in Session 19 (US DOE EM Risk-Informed Performance Based Decision Making).

It is with great pride that we announce that DOE Fellow Silvina Di Pietro was awarded with the 2016 Roy G. Post Foundation Scholarship during the WM2016 Conference Honors and Awards Luncheon. This endowment was founded to support students pursuing careers in the safe management of nuclear materials.
