Konar receives Hydrologic Sciences Early Career Award
Assistant Professor Megan Konar has received the Hydrologic Sciences Early Career Award from the American Geophysical Union. This prestigious award is given annually in recognition of outstanding contributions to the Science of Hydrology, education or societal impacts by a scientist still in the early stage of his or her career. The award acknowledges early career prominence and promise of continued contributions to hydrologic science.
In her research, Konar draws from the fields of hydrology, environmental science and economics to focus on the intersection of water, food and trade. She holds a B.S. (2002) in Conservation and Resource Studies from the University of California at Berkeley, an M.Sc. (2005) in Water Science, Policy and Management from the University of Oxford, and an M.S. (2009) and Ph.D. (2012) in civil and environmental engineering from Princeton University. Konar joined the CEE faculty in 2013, where she teaches courses on Water Resources Engineering and Globalization of Water.
