Dr. Nancy Brodsky is the Manager of the Geochemistry Department at Sandia National Laboratories and Sandia’s lead for the Fossil Energy Clean Coal and Carbon Management subprogram. She received her PhD in Geophysics from the University of Colorado, and worked for industry (RE/SPEC Inc., Rapid City SD) as a project lead and geomechanics laboratory manager, primarily supporting national nuclear waste isolation programs. She joined Sandia National Laboratories in 1995 to support the Waste Isolation Pilot Plan (WIPP), Yucca Mountain, and other geoscience programs. In 2003 she joined the National Infrastructure Simulation and Analysis Center (NISAC), a program sponsored by the Department of Homeland Security. She worked with the Infrastructure Complexity R&D Group and the NISAC Fast Analysis and Simulation Team (FAST), serving as the Sandia lead for FAST and as the Sandia NISAC Deputy Project Lead. She has extensive experience working in industry and in government performing and supervising technical work in regulatory environments such as the Yucca Mountain and Waste Isolation Pilot Plant projects, as well as work for the Food and Drug Administration. She was part of a team recognized by the U.S. National Committee for Rock Mechanics (under the auspices of the National Research Council, National Academy of Sciences) with an Applied Research Award for Significant Original Contribution (1999). In 2017 she became the manager of the geochemistry department.
Giorgia Bettin received a Bachelor in Mechanical Engineering from University of California, Berkeley and a PhD, also in Mechanical Engineering, from MIT. In 2007 Giorgia joined Schlumberger-Doll Research and worked on a variety of projects related to energy harvesting, intelligent completions of oilfields and designing of ‘smart-fluids’ for ‘High-Temperature, High-Pressure’ environments. Giorgia joined Sandia in 2012 where she has worked on various projects for the Strategic Petroleum Reserves as well as wellbore integrity projects for Oil & Gas and Storage Industry. Giorgia currently manages the Geothermal Research department and program.
Anastasia G. Ilgen is a Principal Member of Technical Staff in the Geochemistry Department at Sandia National Laboratories. She is an experimental geochemist with over 10 years of relevant experience, specializing in molecular-level processes at mineral-water interfaces. She focuses on the effects of nano-scale confinement on interfacial reactions, surface-mediated redox reactions, and chemical effects on fracture. She has developed an independent project investigating redox chemistry at the clay mineral – water interfaces, while working on her Ph.D. in Environmental Chemistry at the University of Alaska, Fairbanks. At Sandia National Laboratories, Dr. Ilgen has built research programs relevant to geological carbon storage, chemical-mechanical effects in geosystems, clay mineral-water interfacial chemistry, and isotopic signatures of rock fracturing. Dr. Ilgen was an Assistant Director of the BES DOE-funded Energy Frontier Research center, the Center for Frontiers of Subsurface Energy Security, which focused on multi-scale multi-physics aspects of carbon dioxide storage in subsurface systems.
A strong science, technology, and engineering foundation enables Sandia's mission through a capable research staff working at the forefront of innovation, collaborative research with universities and companies, and discretionary research projects with significant potential impact. Sandia is committed to hiring the nation’s best and brightest, equipping them with world class tools and facilities while providing opportunities to collaborate with technical experts from many different scientific disciplines. To ensure our fundamental science and engineering core is vibrant and cutting edge, Sandia has chosen to invest in the following research foundations: Bioscience, Computing and Information Science, Engineering Science, Geoscience, Materials Science, Nanodevices and Microsystems, Radiation Effects and High Energy Density Science. These diverse research areas enable a multidisciplinary approach to resolve emerging national security problems.
