Christina Beppler , an analytical chemist in explosives technologies, is Sandia’s first recipient of SWE’s Work/Life Integration Award, recognizing her “leadership and initiative in establishing a program of forward-looking benefits that demonstrate an understanding of work and life integration.” Beppler is currently participating on an LDRD that directly supports NNSA while also providing valuable tools for geosciences, energy, and biosciences.

Anne Grillet earned SWE’s 2020 Prism Award for “charting her own path in the STEM fields by demonstrating a variety of outstanding career leadership activities in a technical field.” Grillet’s technical collaborations span Sandia’s mission space from materials science, geosciences and energy to explosives and nuclear deterrence. Currently, Anne is working on an LDRD project looking at how stress is formed in materials during phase changes. This fundamental research will impact new physical models.
