Alicia Mahon, wind energy program manager at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL), has joined the review board of the Journal of Marine Environmental Engineering.

The journal provides technical information for scientists and engineers working on marine environmental problems. In this role, Mahon will review submitted manuscripts, solicit articles for submission, and identify topics for special issues.

She joins ten editorial board members who hail from seven different countries. The members include representatives from academia, federal agencies, international and national research laboratories, and professional consulting.

Mahon is no stranger to journal boards. In 2021, she was invited to be the editor of Marine Technology Society Journal. She also served as a guest editor for a special issue of the Marine Technology Society Journal, “Utilizing Offshore Resources for Renewable Energy Development” in 2020. Mahon is co-leading another special issue for that journal that focuses on buoy technology with colleagues from RD Sea International and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. That issue will be published in March/April 2022.

In January 2022, Mahon stepped into the role of wind energy program manager at PNNL. She also managers the lidar buoy program for the Department of Energy’s Wind Energy Technologies Office.
