Stanier Wins National Engineering Award

Charles Stanier, assistant professor of chemical and biochemical engineering and assistant research engineer at IIHR-Hydroscience & Engineering in the University of Iowa College of Engineering, has been named the recipient of the 2006 Sheldon K. Friedlander Award by the American Association for Aerosol Research (AAAR).

In presenting the award at the International Aerosol Conference held recently in St. Paul, Minn., the association said of Stanier: "His fundamental work, his insights, and the tools that he has developed will leave a lasting impression on the atmospheric aerosols area."

Stanier has research interests in laboratory investigation and field sampling of air pollution -- particularly aerosol particles and greenhouse gases -- and computational simulations involving atmospheric contaminants and aerosol chemistry. He says that his research goal is to support society's efforts to understand and manage potential health and climate effects by constructing experiments and computational models. His work is extensively supported by field measurements and used for the prediction of human exposures and their changes due to changes in precursor emissions, combustion technologies and the increased use of nanomaterials.

The Friedlander Award honors Sheldon Friedlander, the Parsons Professor of Chemical Engineering at UCLA, for his leadership as a researcher, teacher, and pioneer in aerosol science. The award is given to an individual who has earned a doctoral degree for an outstanding dissertation on aerosol science and technology -- in the physical, biomedical or engineering sciences.
