This Monday’s On The Radio segment discusses the recognition of Jerry Schnoor, co-director of the Center for Global and Regional Environmental Research.
Transcript: University of Iowa Center for Global and Regional Environmental Research co-director Jerry Schnoor was recently recognized by the Environmental Science & Technology journal.
This is the Iowa Environmental Focus.
Schnoor was recognized last month for his research contributions and his role as the publication’s long time editor in chief. The commentary was written by Joel Gerard Burken, a former student of Schnoor’s who now serves on the faculty in the Department of Civil, Architectural and Environmental Engineering at the Missouri University of Science and Technology.
Burken – who holds his bachelor’s, master’s and PhD from the University of Iowa – recounted studying under Schnoor in the 1990s and emphasized not only Schnoor’s research and professional achievements but also the strong relationships he builds with his students and colleagues as well as his genuine concern for the environment and public health.
“I really learned a lot during my time with Jerry. He was always committed to the people and their development just as much as he was to the science and research we were doing at the time. His commitment also extended well beyond the lab and classroom. I learned a lot about being the person I am with Jerry as well as developing into the scientist and engineer I am now. Looking back I really owe a lot to the time I had with Jerry and his commitment to me and my work.”
Environmental Science & Technology is a leading biweekly, peer-reviewed scientific journal that covers research in environmental science, technology, and policy.
