CEE PhD student, Xiaonan Shi, received the 2020 John J. Lagrosa Award from the New Jersey Water Environment Association (NJWEA).
Xiaonan Shi, a third-year Ph.D. student in the John A. Reif, Jr. Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, received the 2020 John J. Lagrosa Award from the New Jersey Water Environment Association (NJWEA). Supervised by Professors Wen Zhang and Taha Marhaba, Xiaonan’s research focuses on nanobubble technology, membrane technology and their applications in water treatment and agricultural irrigation. She also has extensive experiences in atomic force microscopy and AFM hybrid technologies for topographical, mechanical and electrochemical characterization of materials at nanoscale. Up to date, her research work has resulted in 3 first-authored and 8 co-authored publications in some of the most prestigious, high-impact journals, including Electrochimica, Environmental Science & Technology, Journal of Membrane Science, Chemical Engineering Journal, Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, and Journal of Colloid and Interface Science. The John J. Lagrosa Award is one of the awards in the Dr. Raymond M. Manganelli Memorial Scholarship Awards Program. Seventeen named NJWEA scholarship awards in the program are now available each year, ranging from $1,000 to $3,000 each, and totaling $50,500 annually. The John J. Lagrosa Award provides incentives and motivation for Ph.D. students of high scholastic achievement to dedicate their professional or academic career to the field of Environmental Protection and Water Quality Control. Xiaonan’s research significantly contributes to understandings of fundamental science of nanobubbles and innovative green applications.
