CCEE faculty, students recognized at AEESP Research and Education Conference

Several CCEE students and faculty attended the 2023 Association of Environmental Engineering and Science Professors (AEESP) Research and Education Conference in June at Northeastern University in Boston. There were more than 800 total participants. The conference theme, “Responding Together to Global Challenges”, was designed to reflect the many contributions environmental scientists and engineers are making to address several concerning global, historical, and emerging challenges to living in a healthy, safe, and just society. 

The conference included technical presentations, workshops, networking events, career development opportunities, community outreach, and more than 300 poster presentations.

Professor and Associate Dean for Faculty Advancement Joel Ducoste was inducted into the AEESP Fellows at the conference’s awards ceremony. AEESP Fellows are selected based on their accomplishments in environmental engineering and science research, teaching and professional service, with emphasis on service within the AEESP.

Two CCEE Ph.D. students brought home poster awards. Ethan Samuel Quinn, advised by Associate Professor Doug Call, won an award for his poster “Physical and chemical changes of activated carbon in response to oxidative chemical treatments and their influence on electron exchange behavior.” Hezhou (Jenny) Ding, also advised by Call, received an award for her poster “A metagenomics meta-analysis to elucidate organic phosphorus biotransformation pathways in anaerobic digesters.”
