  • 2003 Roseanne returns to the regular routine this semester after a sabbatical visit to the USGS in Boulder, CO where she worked with Dr. Ron Harvey on bacterial transport in saturated porous media and a summer at EPFL in Lausanne, Switzerland with Dr. Hauke Harms learning molecular techniques such as fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH) for application to microbial ecology. While in Boulder, Roseanne got to visit with Ford group alum Dr. Heather Reddy who now works in Denver.
  • The U.S. Department of Education has awarded $688,716 to the University of Virginia’s Program in Interdisciplinary Research in Contaminant Hydrogeology for a doctoral training program. This award from the Graduate Assistance in Areas of National Need (GAANN) program plus University support will provide three years of funding for nine doctoral students.
    Eight faculty members from the Departments of Civil Engineering, Chemical Engineering, and Environmental Science, in collaboration with experts from the University’s Teaching Resource Center, and the Office of Minority Programs, will participate in this training program. The intent of the program is to increase the number of students prepared to seek academic positions in contaminant hydrogeology and to train a new generation of interdisciplinary scientists and engineers who can grapple with the vexing environmental problems that beset our Nation’s water resources. The program director is Dr. Teresa Culver (Civil Engineering) and the associate directors are Dr. Roseanne Ford (Chemical Engineering), Dr. Janet Herman (Environmental Science), and Dr. James Smith (Civil Engineering).
