The Western Engineering Graduate Committee
reviewed all nominations in early October and recently awarded Babak Jajuee
Moghaddam and Soheil Gholamreza-Kashi, with the Ross and Jean Clark Scholarships.
Babak Jajuee Moghaddam is studying
in the Chemical and Biochemical Engineering Department under the supervision of
Dr. A. Margaritis. His Co-advisor is Dr. D. Karamanev. Babak's project titled "Biotreatment
of Diesel-Contaminated Water Using a Novel Immobilized Cell Air-lift Bioreactor
System," is a practical engineering approach to resolve the numerous
environmental problems caused by diesel fuel in refinery sites. This project has
been funded by Imperial Oil.
Soheil Gholamreza-Kashi is
completing his PhD studies in the Department of
Civil & Environmental Engineering under the supervision of
Dr. Raouf Baddour.
Soheil's research topic is "Experimental Study of
Rectangular Surface Jets."
The Ross and Jean Clark Scholarships are made
possible by the generosity of Ross (BESc '46, MEng '75) and Jean (BA '46) Clark
to assist graduate students specializing in Environmental Engineering in the
Faculty of Engineering at Western.
