I was recently reading the November/December 2021 issue of “The Science Teacher” a publication of the National Science Teaching Association. In this issue, I read the section, “Career of the Month” which featured an article on Radiochemistry. It was written by Luba Vangelova.
Radiochemists study radiation from an atomic and molecular perspective and find ways to harness the power of radioactive chemical reactions. The radiochemist featured is Catherine Riddle, senior research scientist, at the Idaho National Laboratory.
