Farzaneh MahmoodPoor Dehkordy (Environmental Engineering PhD candidate) has received the Outstanding Student Paper Award (OSPA) at American Geophysical Union (AGU) Fall meeting 2017. OSPA is awarded to promote and reward high quality student research and presentation skills. Farzaneh is mentored by Professor Amvrossios Bagtzoglou (Head of Department and Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering) and Dr. Martin Briggs (USGS Research Hydrologist and Adjunct Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering). Dr. Frederick Day-Lewis (USGS Research Hydrologist) is also a co-author of the work presented in AGU. Farzaneh’s research is about experimental and numerical analysis of less-mobile domain processes in naturally occurring porous media. Her research is funded by the NSF project: “Revealing the Role of Less-Mobile Porosity in Hyporheic Denitrification and Greenhouse Gas Production”. This is Farzaneh’s second year in a row to win the OSPA award.
