Argonne chemist Giselle Sandi (left) poses with the Honorable Dot Harris, Director of the Office of Economic Impact and Diversity at the U.S. Department of Energy, during Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day 2013 at Argonne.
Chemist Lin Chen is recognized internationally for her ground-breaking contributions in the excited-state structural studies using X-ray transient absorption spectroscopy. She was honored in 2012 as a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science for her "contributions to understanding structural dynamics of molecular excited states with special emphasis on problems related to renewable energy."
Jennifer Salazar is a Coordinating Writer and Editor in Argonne’s Computing, Environment and Life Sciences directorate. "I've found that our researchers want to share what excites them and communicate it to others in the wider research community or to the public, and this offers a great environment for a writer," she said.

Testing ensures that the super-conducting undulator for the Advanced Photon Source upgrade will meet the high-precision requirements needed to generate the world's brightest X-rays above energies of 25 keV.
Alyson Yamada is a woman with a unique story. Prior to attending Stanford, she was a dedicated ballet dancer. But due to an unfortunate injury that ended her dance career, Alyson was inspired to research something that could help her injury and decided to study mechanical engineering. She is now majoring in Biomechanical Design and Engineering, an individually designed major within the School of Engineering.
Gender should not be an issue in engineering, says regional director of ICE
“One day, and I hope not too long into the future, we will see an end to gender balance being an issue within the industry. We won’t need a Women into Engineering day." Penny Marshall, regional director of the institution of Civil Engineers,
Nuclear engineer Laural Briggs reviews pressure distribution results from a 217-pin fuel assembly simulation. The simulation was computed by Argonne's Nek5000 large eddy simulation tool on the IBM Blue Gene/P Intrepid supercomputer.
J’Tia Taylor is a nonproliferation technical specialist in Argonne’s Nuclear Engineering division. "I work mainly in the area of export control, assessing technologies for their nonproliferation implications. I look at a lot of the emerging technologies presented to the U.S. government that are not necessarily on the market. My job is to analyze what the technology does and what it’s used for, assess how it can be used and determine its implications for weapons of mass destruction."
Kelly Altes, PE, a lead structural engineer and project executive in KJWW's Des Moines office, has been named to Building Design + Construction magazine's 40 Under 40 Class of 2014. Six years after joining KJWW, Kelly became one of the youngest department supervisors in the company’s history.
Reporting on a range of historical and contemporary female builders and designers, this educational book strives to inspire a new generation of girls in the disciplines of science, technology, engineering, and math.
