While working with the Cohan group, Lance Le (B.S. Civil and Environmental Engineering, 2011) studied the statistical contribution of weather phenomena, such as wind speed and direction, temperature, rainfall, and humidity, to fluctuations in air pollutant concentrations.
Currently, he is pursuing a PhD in Environmental Engineering at University of Iowa, and he expects to graduate in December 2014. His research pertains to watershed response to climate change and land cover with respect to future water quality and quantity. He is a member of the Coupled Natural-Human Systems Research Group, an interdisciplinary group comprised of hydrologists, engineers, economists, geographers, and computer scientists.
