CHEE graduate students Warren Kadoya and Camila Madeira made waves in environmental engineering research this spring, earning several scholarships for their hard work.

Kadoya, a master's degree student who begins doctoral studies with professors Jim Field and Reyes Sierra in the fall, excelled in the AZ Water Conference student poster competition for the second year in a row. His second-place poster, "Anaerobic Coupling Reactions between Reduced Intermediates of 2,4-Dinitroanisole," was a collaborative effort with two other UA departments and a local high school student. 

Other accolades Kadoya has recently accrued include the 2016 Eckenfelder Scholarship from Brown and Caldwell and a 2017 SAEMS Scholarship from the Southern Arizona Environmental Management Society. 

Camila Madeira, a PhD student who also works with Field and Sierra, received a 2017 SAEMS Scholarship as well, for her work on the biodegradability of the insensitive munitions compounds.
