Geoffrey Bowers, assistant professor of chemistry, was recently one of four faculty selected for the competitive Visiting Faculty Program at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) this summer. The program is operated by the United States Department of Energy Office of Science’s Office of Workforce Development for Teachers and Scientists (WDTS) in collaboration with the DOE laboratories. The goal of the program is to bring faculty from institutions traditionally underrepresented in the research community to the national laboratories, expanding their workforce and giving faculty and their students opportunities to engage in and augment their professional scholarship. Sydney Cunniff ’17, one of Bowers’ research students will work [with Bowers] through the US Department of Energy’s Science Undergraduate Laboratory Internships (SULI) program.
