Argonaut Hotel in San Francisco's Fisherman's Wharf

Making Connections in the City by the Bay

Fellows, alumni, academic advisors, and DOE laboratory and headquarters staff convened in San Francisco discuss current topics in high density physics, nuclear science, and materials under extreme conditions and hydrodynamics. Attendees also included recipients of the inaugural DOE NNSA Laboratory Residency Graduate Fellowship class.

Fellows participated in an exclusive tour of Sandia and Lawrence Livermore national laboratories on Tuesday, June 19. They then joined other review attendees at the Argonaut Hotel for official programming on Wednesday, June 20 and Thursday, June 21.

A benefit of the fellowship, the annual program review provides a unique opportunity to connect people from a variety of disciplines and organizations, all while serving to build and strengthen lifelong relationships.
