Graduate Student Receives Student Poster Award

October 23, 2017

Cherie De Vore, a second year PhD student in Civil Engineering advised by Dr. José Cerrato, received the Second Place Student Poster Award at the International Society of Exposure Science (ISES) Conference which took place at Research Triangle Park, North Carolina, on October 17, 2017.  This poster competition included participants from Yale University, Brown University, Harvard University, Rutgers, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and other international universities.  The ISES promotes and advances exposure science (methods, measurements, models) as it relates to the complex inter-relationships between human populations, communities, ecosystems, wildlife, and chemical, biological, and physical agents, and non-chemical stressors. Members of ISES have diverse expertise and training in biological, physical, environmental, and social sciences, as well as various engineering disciplines. Cherie's research is supported by the UNM Center for Native Environmental Health Equity (Native EH Equity) which is sponsored by the National Institute of Health Sciences (NIEHS) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
