POSTPONED: WSEC Annual Networking Forum Event – March 16, 2020

Dear Berkeley Lab Colleagues,

Due to potential concerns people may have regarding large gatherings in a close space, the WSEC has decided to postpone the Annual Networking Event.  A new date has yet to be determined. As one of the goals of the event is to provide networking opportunities, we encourage those who had planned to attend to use the time to invite a someone you don’t know well to lunch, a walk or a coffee in order to share your work and experiences at the lab.

Thank you for your interest and we’ll let you know when a new date has been selected.

– WSEC Executive Committee

Join us for Berkeley Lab’s Women Scientists and Engineers Council (WSEC) Annual Networking Forum Event

As the Associate Lab Director for Earth & Environmental Sciences Area at Berkeley Laboratory, Dr. Susan Hubbard leads a premier group of ~500 staff that has a significant research portfolio in climate science, terrestrial ecosystem science, environmental and biological system science, fundamental geoscience, and subsurface energy resources.  Research within this Area of Berkeley Lab is tackling some of the most pressing environmental and subsurface energy challenges of the 21st Century. Dr. Hubbard is also an Adjunct Professor at UC Berkeley in the Department of Environmental Science, Policy and Management. Dr. Hubbard earned her PhD in Civil and Environmental Engineering at UC Berkeley, and prior to joining Berkeley Lab, she was a geologist at the US Geological Survey and a geophysicist in industry.

As a Senior Scientist at Berkeley Laboratory, Dr. Hubbard’s research focuses on quantifying how terrestrial environments function, with a particular emphasis on the development of geophysical approaches to provide new insights about processes relevant to contaminant remediation, carbon cycling, water resources, and subsurface energy systems. She has over 150 publications and is particularly recognized for her contribution to hydrogeophysics. She leads the DOE Watershed Function Scientific Focus Area project and is a co-PI of the Next Generation Ecosystem Experiment (NGEE-Arctic).
