Sharon Walker recognized as Woman of Distinction
Sharon Walker, a relatively new ETOX faculty member, was recently recognized by the Girl Scouts of the San Gorgonio Council as one of the top 10 female leaders in Riverside and San Bernardino counties. Sharon is an assistant professor in the Department of Chemical and Environmental Engineering, and according to the Inside UCR newspaper, was selected for the 2008 Women of Distinction for achievement in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Her research focuses on the investigating factors controlling bacterial adhesion and transport as it affects water quality. She has recently begun similar studies of the movement of nanoparticles through soil. We congratulate Sharon on this nice recognition.
