A team of environmental scientists in the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering has won this year’s top research prize from the American Academy of Environmental Engineers & Scientists. The 2015 Grand Prize in Research in the academy’s Excellence in Environmental Engineering and Science Competition recognizes the group’s work on contamination at Camp Lejeune in North Carolina.
The School of Civil and Environmental Engineering recognized outstanding faculty, staff and researchers November 14. At the School’s annual awards ceremony, Karen and John Huff School Chair Reginald DesRoches handed out nearly two dozen accolades. He also recognized students who’ve received fellowships over the last year.
The Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry has named Ching-Hua Huang its 2014 North American Chemist. The award means Huang, a professor in the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering, will travel with two of her students to Vancouver in November to present their research at the society’s annual meeting.
