Engineering Postdoctoral Researchers Honored in FSU Research Competition

Florida State University’s Office of Postdoctoral Affairs (OPDA) sponsored the annual five-minute research competition in honor of National Postdoctoral Appreciation Week in the Fall. The event was open to postdoctoral researchers from colleges and departments at FSU. FSU has more than 250 postdocs.

Two researchers representing the department of civil and environmental engineering received awards. A panel of judges and peers chose the winners.

Engineering Researchers Reveal Harmful Blue-Green Algae Hotspots Across Florida’s Lakes

Florida’s freshwater systems sometimes experience cyanobacteria blooms that are harmful to public health and wildlife. Knowing where they might occur next gives officials an opportunity to mitigate the problem before an outbreak.

A new project led by Nasrin Alamdari, an assistant professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the FAMU-FSU College of Engineering, will help communities throughout Florida fight the harmful blue-green algae (cyanobacteria) that plague freshwater lakes across the state.
