Women @ Energy - STEM Careers at US DoE - Radja Boughezal 

Blog Post created by kmillspaugh on Nov 22, 2016


The Women@Energy series showcases profiles of inspirational women in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) careers at the Department of Energy.

The profiles and videos highlight what inspired these women to work in STEM, what they do day-to-day in their jobs, their ideas for engaging others in STEM, tips, and more. Soon, the Women@Energy series will also include sample classroom lessons to engage middle school girls with the Women@Energy series.

We hope the stories and videos inspire women to think about their possible future in STEM. We can and should share our own STEM stories to help engage others and offer our voices on how our STEM careers have impacted us. Questions? Comments? Want to request a speaker? Get in touch by emailing


"Coming up with new ideas and techniques to solve the mysteries of the universe is extremely exciting and very rewarding. We are challenged on a daily basis. There is absolutely no routine in what we do. This keeps you very active, and mentally always challenged. I also love the fact that we collaborate with people from all over the world, and travel to present our new research ideas all over the globe. I had the chance to live in multiple countries: starting with my home country Algeria, going to Italy, Germany, Switzerland and finally my current home, the U.S. I could not dream of a more interesting scientific and social life than what I have experienced so far."
