Lisa Reed is the lead for undergraduate and graduate student programs. These programs provide our next generations of scientists and engineers opportunities to work side-by-side with Argonne’s scientists in research-focused learning experiences. She manages multiple internship programs across the Laboratory, with a focus on providing students with access to a cutting-edge research experience, opportunities for career exploration, skill development, and mentorship experiences. Lisa works to improve the efficiency and impact of each program, while ensuring that each program participant has the best possible experience during their time at the laboratory. She has also supported several outreach activities, such as Science Careers in Search of Women, Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day, Science Bowl, and the Rube Goldberg Competition. Lisa has been on the laboratory staff for over 35 years.
Lisa is the recipient of a 2008 Outstanding Service Award from the University of Chicago and a five-time recipient of the Argonne Pacesetter Award. She is a member of Women in Science and Technology and the Chicago Council of Science and Technology.
