Lauren H. Logan
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
Lauren H. Logan is a PhD candidate and National Science Foundation Fellow in the Energy-Water-Environment Sustainability program through Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. She is working with Dr. Ashlynn Stillwell to develop novel assessment methodologies for aquatic ecosystem changes as a result of thermoelectric power plant effluent, with complementary policy and economic components. She earned a BS in Electrical Engineering and a BS in Geological Sciences from Ohio University, and an MS in Biological Sciences from Purdue University through the Ecological Sciences and Engineering program. Lauren is the president of the Central Illinois Alumni Chapter of Tau Beta Pi, and a member of the UIUC Engineering Graduate Student Advisory Committee. Lauren was on the planning committee for the 2017 Illinois Water Day. Her work, both inside and outside the university, aims to create bridges between science and engineering, motivating others to be proactive in using science and engineering research to change policy and promote sustainability in areas like the energy-water nexus. Lauren also enjoys participating in recruitment events specifically aimed at underrepresented groups in engineering, such as the SURGE program and WE GO CEE at UIUC.
