I also published a few peer-reviewed journal articles, conference proceedings and book chapters from my research work. I was awarded the Best Presentation Award at the Mid-American Environmental Engineering Conference in 2021. 

What do you hope to do after you complete your degree? 
I would like to build a career in cutting-edge research, preferably with the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). 

What would you tell others considering Mizzou Engineering for graduate school?  
I would highly encourage them to choose Mizzou Engineering for graduate school. It has all the elements to prepare graduate students to take on critical problems they may face in their future career endeavors.
