CEE associate professor Jeremy Guest has won the 2021 James J. Morgan Environmental Science & Technology Early Career Award.

Named after the first Editor-in-Chief of the journal Environmental Science & Technology, the award recognizes the contributions of early career researchers who are leading the fields covered by ES&T and ES&T Letters in new directions, through creative and new ideas, consistent with Morgan’s early contributions. The award will be presented at the virtual ACS Division of Environmental Chemistry National Meeting, April 5-16, 2021, at which Guest is also invited to present on a research topic of his choice.

Guest joined the faculty of the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign in 2011. His research interests cover sustainable design, sanitation and resource recovery from wastewater, and innovation for technology development. Specifically, research areas include energy and anaerobic membrane bioreactors with full life-cycle assessment, biofuels, microalgae and the removal of nutrients from wastewater to generate biomass for energy, and improving sanitation for developing countries alongside the challenges of technology adoption and local economics.

“His research style shows an effective and systematic ability to identify the relevance and practical implications of a given research area and address key questions for further forward development,” the award announcement noted.
