Anne Campbell, an R&D associate at the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory, has been selected for an Emerging Professional award from ASTM International. ASTM, formerly the American Society for Testing and Materials, is an international standards organization that develops and publishes voluntary consensus technical standards for a wide range of materials, products, systems and services.

“The objective of the Emerging Professionals program is to create a new opportunity with long-term benefits for new members who have demonstrated the potential to be industry and committee leaders,” according to the award.

Among the benefits, those selected for the award receive leadership development training from a professional facilitator and learn skills such as negotiation, consensus building and problem-solving, as well as attending a workshop on ASTM and its standards development process. Campbell will participate in these training opportunities at the June 2023 ASTM Committee D02 on Petroleum Products, Liquid Fuels and Lubricants meeting.

“It is an honor to be recognized and nominated by my peers as a future leader in this community,” Campbell said. “I’m excited to have this opportunity to meet other leaders in ASTM and know this will help deepen my understanding of the process of developing and approving new testing standards. I utilize ASTM standards every day in my work, and knowing the development process better will help me grow as a scientist.”

Campbell studies the effects of irradiation, temperature and stress on graphite and other carbon-based materials, and develops novel materials for advanced nuclear applications. She is in the Nuclear Energy Materials Microanalysis group in ORNL’s Materials Science and Technology Division.

Campbell was a summer intern at ORNL in 2010 and came as a postdoctoral researcher in 2014. She became R&D associate in 2016. She received her  master’s degree and doctorate in nuclear engineering and radiological sciences from the University of Michigan and her undergraduate degree in nuclear engineering from Purdue University. She is technical chair for the Materials in Nuclear Energy Systems, or MiNES, 2023 conference and is active in multiple professional societies. Lawrence Bernard
