Burant Awarded Bradford and Diane Smith Graduate Fellowship
CEE PhD student Aniela Burant has recently been awarded a Bradford and Diane Smith Graduate Fellowship. Working within the area of carbon storage and enhanced oil recovery, Aniela’s research focuses on assessing the risk for organic compounds found in depleted oil reservoirs to migrate to aquifers. She also explores the use of those compounds as naturally occurring tracers for the detection of CO2 and brine leaks from CO2 storage formations. This fellowship will provide additional support for her ongoing research.
The Bradford and Diane Smith fellowship was created through the generosity of Bradford Smith, a 1969 graduate of the College of Engineering, and his wife Diane, a 1971 graduate of the Dietrich College of Humanities and Social Sciences to help support the graduate studies of highly deserving students in the College of Engineering (CMU).
