Civil and Environmental Engineering Professor Lutgarde Raskin was honored with the Ardern-Lockett award at the International Water Association’s recent Microbial Ecology and Water Engineering Specialist Conference (MEWE2019). The conference was held in Hiroshima, Japan from November 17th until November 20th.
This award recognizes outstanding contributions to research and practice in the field of Microbial Ecology and Water Engineering, and is named after chemists Edward Arden and William Lockett for their contribution to the activated sludge process. Raskin’s work strives to use sustainable design approaches to understand and improve the engineered water cycle microbiome.
The MEWE 2019 conference hosted a range of researchers in the field of microbial diversity of water engineering for knowledge exchange and networking. This challenging program encouraged participants to reflect on how they can contribute to a sustainable society through scientific and social programs.
Many congratulations to Professor Raskin for this much deserved recognition!
