Assistant Professor Jeremy Guest has been selected to receive the 2019 Association of Environmental Engineering and Science Professors (AEESP) Award for Outstanding Teaching in Environmental Engineering and Science. The award recognizes environmental engineering or science professors who are making outstanding contributions to the teaching of environmental engineering.

"I am honored to be recognized by AEESP colleagues for whom I have tremendous respect, and delighted to follow in the footsteps of two other Illinois CEE faculty who have received this award - Ashlynn Stillwell and Susan Larson," Guest said.

Guest joined the CEE at Illinois faculty in 2011, where he teaches courses in environmental engineering and conducts research that centers on the development of technologies for sustainable water and sanitation, with a focus on resource recovery from wastewater. He serves as the Environmental Sustainability Lead for the Soybean Innovation Lab, the Sustainable Design Lead for the Center for Advanced Bioenergy and Bioproducts Innovation, and the Thrust Leader for Sanitation and Resource Recovery for the Safe Global Water Institute. In addition to other teaching and research honors, Guest regularly appears on the List of Teachers Ranked as Excellent by their Students.

"I am tremendously lucky to work with passionate, driven students, and look forward to many more years of training future leaders during their time here in CEE," Guest said.
