My position at Sandia allows me to work with staff at Sandia and other national labs, academic research groups, and student interns. I have led projects and subtasks, and served on projects led by more senior or more junior staff and collaborators. I am a stranger to neither the lab, where I can be found turning wrenches, stirring reactions, and washing glassware; nor to the computer chair, where I crunch numbers, write proposals and work plans, and publish papers; nor to the podium at chemistry and materials science conferences.
