PhD grad Trevor Krasowsky receives the William F. Ballhaus, Jr. Prize for Excellence in Graduate Engineering Research

PhD graduate Trevor Krasowsky received the William F. Ballhaus, Jr. Prize for Excellence in Graduate Engineering Research at the 2018 Viterbi Ph.D. Hooding and Awards ceremony on May 10. His research, under the direction of Assistant Professor George Ban-Weiss, looks at climate and health issues caused by air pollutants known as black carbon particles produced by diesel engines, coal power plants and biomass burning. His work aids scientists and policy-makers with the California Air Resources Board, where he now works, to create science-backed policies that reduce human health risks associated with air pollution and exposes the role of black carbon in warming our planet.
