Professor Aditya Thakur (Computer Science) and Professor Maureen Kinyua (Civil and Environmental Engineering) were one of three recipients of the 2018 Dean’s Collaborative Research (DECOR) Award. The DECOR program was initiated this year by Dean Curtis and facilitated by the College’s Research and Library Committee to catalyze new research ideas by supporting collaborations between faculty who have different areas of expertise.

Thakur and Kinyua are collaborating on a project titled “Effective Desulfurization Through Microaeration During Anaerobic Digestion”, which aims to develop mathematical models to help understand the microbial mechanisms during microaeration for biogas generation.
