José M. Cerrato, associate professor and associate chair for undergraduate studies in the Department of Civil, Construction and Environmental Engineering and the University of New Mexico, presents "Reactivity of U(Vi) and as(V) Mixtures: Relevance for Risk Assessment and Remediation of Mine Wastes."
Prime Locale for Water Reuse
“Water scarcity in this region has made everyone hyper-aware of water issues and extremely focused on finding ways to sustain their way of life in the desert.”
Active Learning at Its Best
“Our students are really successful, amazingly so. My goal is to create a series of tasks and questions that force even the best students to make tough choices.”
“We put a lot of time and energy into professional mentoring; telling students exactly what opportunities are out there for chemists, mathematicians and environmental engineers.”
Training for Jobs of the Future
“The very fabric of our nation’s economic and environmental sustainability hinges on a precarious balance of water supply reliability and security in the face of climate change and increasing urbanization.”
