Hordern Awarded Cohon Fellowship
Hordern received her undergraduate degree in Civil Engineering at the University of Texas at Austin. She is currently working under professors Greg Lowry and Dave Dzombak to investigate the reuse of saline waters in energy and agriculture.
“I am incredibly honored to have received this award," says Hordern. "Though I am just starting my time here, Carnegie Mellon has already given me some incredible opportunities. I would like to thank Dr. Jared Cohon and Mrs. Maureen Cohon for this generous fellowship.”
Through a generous gift to the Inspire Innovation Campaign for Carnegie Mellon University, University Professor and President Emeritus Jared Cohon and his wife Maureen Cohon established in 2009 The Jared and Maureen Cohon Graduate Fellowship in Civil and Environmental Engineering. The fund established with their gift is used to provide research support fellowships to deserving graduate students in Civil and Environmental Engineering who are specializing in environmental engineering.
