Water & Biogeochemical Cycles
March is Women's History Month, a time to celebrate the contributions women have made to society. Sigma Xi will participate by celebrating women's contributions to science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). We asked women in STEM, most of whom are Sigma Xi members, to share their career experiences and their advice for girls and women interested in STEM. -
PSU researcher Jennifer Miksas-Olds was among those featured this year:
As Pennsylvania renews efforts to clean the state's waterways and the Chesapeake Bay, Penn State's College of Agricultural Sciences is helping to craft a strategy in which farmers spearhead clean-water initiatives.
Agriculture has high standards for conservation, with roots in a culture of stewardship, and farmers are ready to lead and be the solution for clean water, according to Matthew Royer, director of the college's Agriculture and Environment Center.
As cloud computing has an ever-increasing impact on our daily lives, researchers have started to look for ways to integrate this new platform into their current practices.
Xiaofeng Liu, assistant professor of civil engineering, recently received a $9,000 grant from Amazon Web Services (AWS) to conduct a 12-month research project on computational modeling for river restorations using the cloud.
Liu is eager to explore the future of computational research.
