We are pleased to announce that CEE Graduate student Julie Kim wins DOE Office of Science Graduate Student Research (SCGSR) Award. She is one of the 78 outstanding U.S. Graduate Students and the selection was based on merit peer review by external scientific experts.

The Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) Office of Science has selected 78 graduate students representing 26 states for the Office of Science Graduate Student Research (SCGSR) program’s 2020 Solicitation 2 cycle. Through world-class training and access to state-of-the-art facilities and resources at DOE National Laboratories, SCGSR prepares graduate students to enter jobs of critical importance to the DOE mission and secures our national position at the forefront of discovery and innovation. Students will perform Research at the National Laboratories.

Julie will be going to Argonne National Laboratory to study carbonate solid solution precipitation and reactivity using synchrotron X-ray scattering and microscopy techniques. She will collaborate with DOE scientists Dr. Paul Fenter and Dr. Sang Soo Lee of the Interfacial Processes group at Argonne National Laboratory.
