The Universities Council on Water Resources (UCOWR) has selected Dr. Leigh-Anne Krometis to receive the 2022 UCOWR Mid-Career Award for Applied Research! Dr. Krometis will be recognized for this award at the 2022 UCOWR/NIWR Annual Water Resources Conference in Greenville, SC, June 14-16.
From Dr. Krometis’s research website: “The aim of our work is to promote sustainable development while preserving public health though the identification of potential environmental threats and the engineering of solutions to minimize exposure and risk. Inspired by the Virginia Tech motto Ut Prosim, our efforts intentionally examine the potential intersections of socioeconomics and demographics factors, infrastructure, and hydrology on patterns of human environmental exposures.”
