Research Areas: Analytical Chemistry
Biography: Magen completed her postdoctoral work in nuclear forensics at Los Alamos National Laboratory working in the Actinide Analytical Chemistry group. Before coming to the Materials and Fuels Complex in March 2017, Magen worked at Knolls Atomic Power Laboratory in the Radio and Analytical Chemistry group, with her work focusing on gamma spectroscopy. In the Analytical Laboratory at MFC, her work focuses on multi-collector ICP-MS as well as counting systems, particularly gamma and alpha spectroscopy.
