1. A graduate student of Professor Dionysios Dionysiou, was recognized as one of four graduate students chosen for the UC Sigma Xi Grant-In-Aid of Research Awards
Ying Huang, a graduate student of Professor Dionysios Dionysiou, was recognized as one of four graduate students chosen for the UC Sigma Xi Grant-In-Aid of Research Awards at the Sigma Xi Spring Mixer on February 28, 2018. This highly competitive and prestigious award is a monetary amount of $2500 to be used for summer research or travel for presentation. Her proposal was entitled, “The Significant Role of CO3• − in Removing Contaminants of Emerging Concern by UV/NO3−/HCO3− for Water Reuse Applications.” Ying received a second award for her work in water treatment: the Graduate Student Paper Award presented by the American Chemical Society’s Division of Environmental Chemistry. This award is the highest given and comes with a $1000 check and an invitation to present the paper at the society's fall meeting in Boston.
2. “Analysis of Life Cycle within Various Strains of Cyanobacteria with a Focus on Internal Regulators and Toxin Production”
Jackie Fischer, a PhD student in Environmental Engineering and Science studying under Professor Dionysios Dionysiou at the U.S.EPA, recently presented a poster entitled, “Analysis of Life Cycle within Various Strains of Cyanobacteria with a Focus on Internal Regulators and Toxin Production” at the 2018 Graduate Student Expo held at the University of Cincinnati on February 15, 2018. She was chosen as a winner for the Physical Sciences and Engineering category. Winners were given a $100 cash prize and invited to the Graduate School Awards Banquet held at the Kingsgate Marriott Conference Center.
3. Xi Ru takes CEAS Engineer of the Month
Xi Ru, undergraduate major in Environmental Engineering and Science was awarded the CEAS November Engineer of the Month. Xi has taken co-op positions at Yingli Solar in Singapore, internally, working under Professor Mingming Lu researching biodiesel production and at BiOWISH Technology Inc. in Cincinnati.
