Lauren Stadler, assistant professor of civil and environmental engineering, is one of 84 engineers selected to take part in the National Academy of Engineeringâ€™s (NAE) 24th annual U.S. Frontiers of Engineering Symposium (FOE).
The FOE symposium in Massachusetts in September brings together engineers ages 30 to 45 who are performing exceptional engineering and technical work in a variety of disciplines. Participants hail from industry, academia and government, and are nominated for attendance by fellow engineers or organizations.
â€śIt is critically important to bring young engineers from different technical areas together to spark innovation,â€ť said NAE President C. D. Mote, Jr. â€śThe Frontiers of Engineering program does this by creating a space for talented engineers to learn from each other and expand their technical perspectives early in their careers. Congratulations to this yearâ€™s FOE participants.â€ť
Stadler's research focuses on advancing water reuse and energy recovery from wastewater using a multi-disciplinary approach that combines microbial ecology, environmental chemistry, and sustainability assessment.
