Katherine Guzman of Sandia National Laboratories has earned a Luminary honor for her work in the field of risk management. The award was presented at the HENAAC Conference in New Orleans on Oct. 5.
The award honors leaders in the field of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) for research and planning in their organizations. Recipients have made contributions to the Hispanic technical community and serve as role models for Hispanics considering careers in science or technology.
Ms. Guzman spearheads SUMMIT, Sandia's efforts to help the Department of Homeland Security better understand security risks and look out for potential disasters. SUMMIT -- which stands for Standard Unified Modeling, Mapping, and Integration Toolkit -- allows disaster planning systems to share information with each other.
Ms. Guzman's work as a leader, mentor and keynote speaker inspires her to continue advocating for women and minorities in science and engineering, according to a news release.
