Professor Krishna Reddy hosting three months of webinars
Professor Krishna Reddy, of civil, materials, and environmental engineering at UIC, has announced the 2023 schedule for the “International Webinar Series Geoenvironmental Engineering: Site Remediation, Waste Management, and Sustainability/Resiliency.”
During the webinars, well-known speakers from across the world will share their knowledge and expertise on various issues related to geoenvironmental engineering and provide insight on how to deal with those challenges in a sustainable way.
Geoenvironmental engineering is a multidisciplinary field that draws upon a wide range of scientific and engineering principles, including geotechnical engineering, environmental engineering, geology, hydrology, geochemistry, microbiology, sustainability, and resilience to address some of the most pressing environmental and infrastructure issues of our time.
The three-month online webinar series begins Thursday, Feb. 2, with “Modified Surfaces in Environmental Electrochemistry, as an Alternative to the Sustainable Development,” and runs weekly until April 27. The webinars are free, but registration is required. Register for all or selected webinars at https://uic.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZEsf-yopzIrEtRh5zTfIGNrFMxW5qMrYN4S.
“Given the potential negative impacts of these issues on human health and the environment, it is crucial that young engineers, researchers, industry personnel, and representatives from developing economies are well-informed about the latest technologies and best practices for dealing with these challenges, in a sustainable and resilient manner,” Reddy said.
The webinars are geared toward young researchers and practicing engineers who are interested in learning more about the latest developments and best practices related to geoenvironmental engineering. The series is also for industry professionals, from various related sectors, who are looking to stay informed about the latest research trends in the field. Climate enthusiasts, environmental scientists, students, and other individuals who are interested in learning about the various challenges related to geoenvironmental engineering and their effects on climate change and sustainability should also register to participate in the webinars.
