Dale Wins 2015 Innovyze Excellence in Computational Hydraulics/Hydrology Award
CEE/EPP PhD candidate Amy Dale has been awarded the 2015 Innovyze Award for Excellence in Computational Hydraulics/Hydrology from Environmental Engineering and Science Foundation.
Her thesis research focuses on understanding the connections between watershed hydrology, water quality, and the environmental fate of engineered nanoparticles comprised of metals and metal oxides, an emerging pollutant increasingly found in consumer goods.
Her publications related to this work include a recent Feature article in Environmental Science and Technology. Among other achievements, she is a national 2010 Udall Scholar, a 2011 ARCS ("Achievement Rewards for College Scientists") Scholar, a former NSF IGERT Fellow, and a current EPA STAR Graduate Research Fellow. She received a B.S. in Bioinformatics (summa cum laude) from the University of Pittsburgh in 2011. In her free time, she is an avid watercolorist, hiker, and environmentalist. Dale is advised by Blenko Professor Greg Lowry.
Innovyze Excellence in Computational Hydraulics/Hydrology Award is given annually to recognize a student whose research contributes to the knowledge pool of in the area of Computational Hydraulics & Hydrology. The award selection will be based on original, innovative research of publishable quality.
