About The Winners

Adeola-Sorinolu



Adeola Sorinolu
1st Place

Adeola Sorinolu completed her bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering from Obafemi Awolowo University, Nigeria in 2013. Thereafter, she proceeded to the United Kingdom to pursue a master’s degree in environmental engineering at Newcastle University under the Commonwealth Shared Scholarship scheme. She is currently studying for a PhD Degree in Civil Engineering with a research focus in environmental engineering at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte (UNCC), USA. Her research seeks to understand the fate of antibiotic resistance determinants during advanced oxidation treatments of water and wastewater, to develop environmentally-friendly antimicrobial agents and apply analytical methods for identifying and monitoring biological contaminants of concern. 

Liang-Wu



Liang Wu
2nd Place - Tie

Liang Wu is a fifth-year Ph.D. candidate at the University of California Riverside. His research focuses on advanced oxidation processes (UV and non-UV) to remove organic contaminants in the water reuse scenario. Liang tries to uncover the mechanisms that govern the rapid removal of organic contaminants on a bench-scale first and then conducts a pilot-scale study to optimize the treatment efficiency in realistic water parameter conditions.

Natalie-Gayoso



Natalie Gayoso
2nd Place - Tie

Natalie Gayoso is a first-generation master’s student at the University of New Mexico studying Environmental Engineering. Her research is revolved around atmospheric water harvesting (AWH), a methodology used to capture moisture from the air and convert it into drinking water. Specifically, she is using Techno-Economic Analysis to analyze costs, benefits, and uncertainties in scaling up condensation-based AWH across various climate regions. Aside from her scientific interests, she enjoys reading, CrossFit, videography, and traveling. She looks forward to inspiring the next generation though the work she's accomplished.

Anna Cardall



Anna Cardall
3rd Place

Anna Cardall is a rising junior at Brigham Young University studying chemical engineering. In her research at BYU, she is studying the geochemistry of a local lake and working to develop open-source remote sensing tools that evaluate water quality. In her spare time, she loves to read and to hike the great trails in Utah!
