The Black Engineer of the Year Award conference honored five Sandians for their outstanding achievements in engineering, science and technology.

Nicole Jackson, systems engineer and senior member of Sandia’s technical staff, won the Most Promising Engineer in Industry Award. Jackson’s work centers around finding ways to help communities adapt to a changing climate while sustainably developing and managing their natural resources. Her research looks at what natural hazards have occurred in the past, what is projected in the future, how these have impacted infrastructure and how we can improve decision making around these findings.
