The lectureship is an honor that recognizes excellence in research and teaching as well as the ability to give engaging talks to the environmental engineering and science community and the general public.
Beginning this week and continuing through April 2016, she will visit 18 institutions in the U.S., Canada and Germany. Her tour offers two lectures and host institutions select which one she will deliver at each location.
One talk discusses how chemicals from water disinfection, chemical manufacturing or pharmaceutical use travel through our water system and influence microbial communities, ecosystems and public health. The other explores how growing and shrinking cities in a changing climate will demand new ways to handle urban wastewater.
The Association of Environmental Engineering and Science Professors was founded more than 50 years ago and this is the 46th year of the lectureship.
