EAPS Alumnus Receives Fulbright Award
Syed E. Hasan, Ph.D., 1978 Purdue alumnus and MKC geosciences professor emeritus, has been awarded a Fulbright award to Qatar by the J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board (FFSB). He received his Ph.D. in 1978 under the direction of Professor Terry West. Hasan will teach courses in waste management and environmental geology at Qatar University, and offer seminars at other Middle East universities, during the 2016 spring semester.
"Qatar, with its unique marine and desert ecosystems, needs to implement a waste management strategy that is compatible with its natural environment," Hasan said. "I am looking forward to sharing my expertise in the field of waste management with students and faculty at Qatar University to help them develop a sound waste management plan for their country."
