Alicia Surrao

Alicia is an experienced science writer who earned her PhD in Chemistry at the University of Cincinnati with a joint appointment at Argonne National Laboratory. Her dissertation focuses primarily on optimizing methods for analyzing nuclear materials for nuclear forensic applications. Her interest in preventing the spread of nuclear weapons led her to study nuclear safeguards and nonproliferation policy from experts at Brookhaven, Argonne and Pacific Northwest National Laboratories, Texas A&M, and the Japan Atomic Energy Agency. In these situations, Alicia enjoys the challenge of communicating complex technical information using data visualization and contemplating ethical dilemmas through rhetorical analysis. At Untold, Alicia supports the design and development of written and visual deliverables for scientific and technical organizations.
