In July President Barack Obama appointed Linda Nozick, professor of civil and environmental engineering, to serve as a member of the U.S. Nuclear Waste Technical Review Board. The board provides independent scientific and technical oversight of the Department of Energy's program for managing and disposing of high-level radioactive waste and spent nuclear fuel.

Nozick previously received a Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers from President Bill Clinton for "the development of innovative solutions to problems associated with the transportation of hazardous waste." She has been an associate editor for Naval Research Logistics and has served on two National Academy committees to advise the U.S. Department of Energy on renewal of its infrastructure.
