EMPOWER trainee collaborates to secure funding for research

Kristy Gutchess, who is a PhD student in Earth Sciences and an EMPOWER trainee, recently learned that her proposal to study the influence of weather patterns on runoff and de-icing salt at Syracuse University was funded through the “Campus as Laboratory for Sustainability” program. Her research team includes Drs. Zunli Lu, Laura Lautz, Christa Kelleher, Don Seigel (all from Earth Sciences), Teng Zeng (from Civil & Environmental Engineering), and Stephen Shaw (from SUNY ESF).

To learn more about the “Campus as Laboratory for Sustainability Program,” please see sustainability.syr.edu.

Congratulations, Kristy!
