ANAGNOSTOPOULOS RESEARCH GROUP
Congratulations to Jordan, Kyle and Ian who got awarded the prestigious NNSA and SULI fellowships from the Department of Energy! Jordan will be spending the summer at Lawrence Livermore and Kyle and Ian at Oak Ridge National Lab, studying legacy contamination, neptunium spectroscopy etc.
Jordan received the 2nd Award on a national level in the Innovations on Nuclear Technology Awards established by the Department of Energy, in the category "Nuclear Fuel Disposition" for his work on technetium proliferation ! Congrats Jordan!
Ilana received the 2021 ACS Undergraduate Award in Environmental Chemistry for her research on iodine environmental contamination. One of the twenty awards given out nationally. Congratulations Ilana!
Travis was selected on a national level for the prestigious Department of Energy Summer Undergraduate Internship !
Travis will join a team at Oak Ridge National Lab who work on a plutonium supply program in support of NASA's mission.
Jordan received the 2020 Clay and Minerals Society Travel Award!
He will be presenting (virtually) his work on the oxidative dissolution of Technetium Oxides by manganese oxides through solid-solid redox interactions.
Congrats Jordan, very proud of you!
Dr. Anagnostopoulos and the group have been awarded the Safety Champion Award by UCF Leadership!
The Safety Champion Award is given to a faculty member who has exhibited high safety standards in a research setting, has taken an active role and promoted safety and lead by example among their peers.
Dr. Anagnostopoulos received the Nuclear Regulatory Commission Faculty Development Award ($610K, 3 years) in order to develop the Radiochemistry program at UCF.
Jordan received the 2019 ACS Undergraduate Research Award in Environmental Chemistry for his studies on environmental stability of technetium sulfides. This is one of the twenty awards given out by ACS annually. Congratulations Jordan!
Great work on plutonium interactions with soil from Nevada Test Site by Jordan during his summer internship at Lawrence Livermore National Lab ! Story was featured on LLNL opening page. Read the story
UCF and our research group are part of the Nuclear Workforce Development Consortium organized by Lawrence Livermore National Lab. Discussed opportunities and collaborations in radiochemistry & nuclear forensics with colleagues from academia and government.
Jordan was recently selected among hundreds of graduate students by UCF Office of Research and College of Graduate Studies for a highlight article for his research accomplishments!
Our group's research was featured at the American Chemical Society - Department of Energy 2021 Nuclear Summer School and Dr. Anagnostopoulos was invited speaker again in 2022! Great experience talking about our Environmental Radiochemistry program!
Morgan graduated with MSc in 2020 after defending successfully her thesis on uranium siderophore environmental mobility and interactions with manganese oxides. She will be continuing her career at U.S Air Force. Congratulations Morgan!
Dr. Dan Kaplan (Department of Energy - Savannah River National Lab) visited UCF on 3/2/2020 invited by Dr. Anagnostopoulos. Dr. Kaplan met with our group and discussed with Dr. Anagnostopoulos common projects and future collaborations.
Dr. Anagnostopoulos organized and chaired the symposium "Advancements in Environmental Chemistry" at the 2019 SERMACS. Invited speakers included academic professors (UGA, Georgia Tech, USC), as well as scientists from DOE's National Labs (SRNL).
Exploring beautiful downtown Chicago during Fall '22 ACS. Who said science cannot be fun..
A really tiring semester for all of us is over, but with many accomplishments and awards, celebrated with dinner!
Summer is a period full of birthday celebrations. Happy birthday Jordan, Morgan and Dr. A!
After a tiring week, a bit of exercise helps clear out our mind. Who knew racquetball is such a dangerous sport...
Our Group's 2019 Thanksgiving Potluck at UCF Arboretum. Great food and company, surrounded by green and trees. Happy Thanskgiving!
Great time with the group at Orlando Topgolf! Grabbed a bite, shot some balls, laughed a lot. Team Morgan (Morgan, Jordan, Ilana) won! For now..
