Presidential Appointee to Lead PNNL's Nuclear Process Science Initiative
Sue Clark, an internationally known environmental radiochemist, joined PNNL in January as a Battelle Fellow. Dr. Clark will lead PNNL’s new Nuclear Process Science Initiative, which seeks to better understand waste processing and nuclear forensics, while leveraging the unique capabilities of the Radiochemical Processing Laboratory. The initiative, a five year endeavor, will tackle challenges that are central to DOE’s environmental management and non-proliferation missions.
Dr. Clark was previously at Washington State University, where she will continue a joint appointment while educating the next generation of nuclear scientists. She was appointed by President Obama to the U.S. Nuclear Waste Technical Review Board, serving from 2011 through October 2014. Dr. Clark is a Fellow of the American Chemical Society and of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. She was elected to the Washington State Academy of Sciences in 2010 and currently serves on its board of directors.
