Tina M. Nenoff is a Senior Scientist at Sandia National Laboratories in the materials research group. Her research focuses on the highly selective capture, detection, and controlled storage of targeted gases and ions. This research has applications in national security, civilian nuclear energy, energy efficiency, and environmental cleanup. In particular, her research focuses on understanding the chemistry that occurs in nanoporous frameworks and how that chemistry relates to bulk scale performance.
Dr. Nenoff is the Principal Investigator of numerous research programs and multiple national lab-industry-university collaborations. In 2016 she was highlighted in the "Successful Women Ceramic and Glass Scientists and Engineers: 100 Inspirational Profiles." In 2011, Dr. Nenoff was named a Fellow of the American Chemical Society. She won a Federal Laboratory Consortium National Award in 2013 for "Removal of Radioactive Cesium from Seawater Using Crystalline Silico-Titanates." She was also a Panel Member and co-author on the National Academies 2010 report "Waste Form Technology and Performance." Dr. Nenoff has engaged in national level leadership/participation in national and international professional societies, and in policy development through scientific guidance organizations such as the National Academies of Science, AAAS, and the Committee on Science for the board of directors of the American Chemical Society (ACS).
Dr. Nenoff earned her MA and PhD in Chemistry from the University of California, Santa Barbara, and a BA in Chemistry from the University of Pennsylvania.
