Charmayne Lonergan-1

ACerS is pleased to announce that Charmayne Lonergan has been selected for Volunteer Spotlight, a program through which we recognize a member who demonstrates outstanding service to The American Ceramic Society through volunteerism.

Lonergan is a glass scientist in the Radiological Materials Group in the Energy and Environment Directorate at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory in Richland, Wash. She currently works on glass formulations for waste vitrification in support of the Hanford Waste Treatment and Immobilization Plant mission.

Her work includes processing novel glass compositions and analysis of their properties, modeling of glass properties, understanding the corrosion behavior of glass waste forms, and development of constraints for glass development. Additionally, Lonergan participates in STEM outreach, the Keramos Kriegel Committee, and is a cochair of the ACerS Young Professionals Network Steering Committee.

ACerS extends its deep appreciation to Lonergan for her service to our Society!
