Early Career Development LDRD Awards

November 30, 2017

Award Recipient(s) 

Hanna Breunig and Anna Spurlock


Hanna Breunig and Anna Spurlock, have been awarded new Early Career Development awards, as part of the Laboratory-Directed Research and Development Program. The award will fund each scientist’s salary and research expenses for the next two years:

Hanna Breunig: "Mitigating Fossil Fuel and Microbial Methane With New Materials for Distributed Energy Generation"
Anna Spurlock: “A Neuroeconomics Experiment to Study Routine Transportation Decision-Making Processes and Drivers”

The Early Career Development track within the LDRD Program is intended to help Lab scientists begin leading their own research, and could help them prepare to compete for DOE-funded awards such as the DOE Early Career Research Program awards.
