ACerS is pleased to announce Krista Carlson has been selected for Volunteer Spotlight, a program that recognizes a member who demonstrates outstanding service to The American Ceramic Society through volunteerism.

Carlson is associate professor of chemical and materials engineering at the University of Nevada, Reno (UNR). She received a B.S. in glass engineering science and Ph.D. in glass science from the New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University.

Carlson works primarily on developing materials and processes to deal with the backend of the nuclear fuel cycle and waste generated from the nation’s nuclear weapons program. As a lover of water in all forms, she has also focused her efforts on understanding the role of suboxide and disordered phases on the electrochemical behavior of titanium oxide electrodes for water purification.

Last year, Carlson served as chair of the Energy Materials & Systems Division (EMSD) and co-chair of the Education and Professional Development Council. She is currently the faculty advisor for the Material Advantage student chapter at UNR.

Carlson was recently recognized as a Global Ambassador for her work with EMSD and for being a co-lead organizer for MCARE 2023.

We extend our deep appreciation to Carlson for her service to our Society!
