Traveling in June yields great rewards!

Changcheng Pu, third from left, receives Stantec Student Travel Award


Changcheng Pu, a Ph.D. student in Civil and Environmental Engineering and EMPOWER trainee, spent many days away from Syracuse during the month of June. First, he traveled to Buffalo to participate in the 13th Annual LC-MS/MS Workshop on Environmental and Food Safety. With faculty advisor Teng Zeng, Changcheng presented a poster entitled “Characterization of N-nitrosamines in wastewater combining Orbitrap high resolution spectrometry and chemiluminescence detection.” Judged by a committee of professors and researchers, the poster earned the Best Student Poster Award!

Then, Changcheng traveled to Ann Arbor, MI, to attend the Association of Environmental Engineering and Science Professors (AEESP) Research and Education Conference. At that conference, he received the Stantec Student Travel Award! This is a big honor, given the tight competition for awards like this.

Congratulations, Changcheng!
