Environments 2019 Travel Award
On behalf of the Evaluation Committee, we are pleased to announce the winner of the 2019 Environments Travel Award. This has been granted to:
Dr. Sutie Xu, a postdoctoral researcher at The University of Tennessee, USA. She works in the studies on soil health in a variety of ecosystems types under different climate conditions. The objective of these studies is to understand the response of soil properties and processes to management strategies to improve all aspects of ecosystem services, including provisioning, regulating, and supporting. Up now, she has been working with the response of soil carbon dynamics to grazing management. In the future, she would like to continue her research in the area of soil quality and agroecosystem management. Her overall academic goal is to understand the soil physical, chemical, and biological processes and explore strategies on enhancing soil fertility and productivity, carbon and nutrient dynamics, ecosystem sustainability, and resilience.Prof. Dr. Yu-Pin Lin
Envionments (ISSN 2076-3298) is an international, open-access journal of environmental sciences published quarterly online by MDPI. The award consists of 500 Swiss Francs, and the winner can attend an academic conference of their choice in 2019. We would like to thank all the applicants for submitting their diverse and fascinating range of research topics.

Environments 2018 Winner Announcement - Travel Award
On behalf of the Evaluation Committee, we are pleased to announce the winner of the 2018 Environments Travel Award. This has been granted to Dr. Jose Luis Díaz De Tuesta Triviño, a postdoctoral researcher at the Polytechnic Institute of Bragança (IPB), Portugal. He works in the treatment of oily wastewater using an advanced oxidation process with amphiphilic carbon-based materials. To date, he has worked with carbon nanotubes, graphene, activated carbon and xerogel carbon as catalysts. His work not only consists of the assessment of carbon-based catalysts in these treatments, but also their production and chemical modification in order to increase their catalytic activity in the processes.Prof. Dr. Yu-Pin Lin
Environments 2017 Travel Award
On behalf of the Evaluation Committee, we are pleased to announce the winner of the 2017 Environments Travel Award. This has been granted to:
Dr. Liesbeth Weijs, a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Queensland, Australia. Her work is focused on the development of coupled models (PBTK/TD) for marine mammals in order to provide some fundamental components from which a comprehensive management and conservation strategy can be developed. Her research trajectory points towards providing PBTK/TD models as tools that can be used to reasonably connect exposure and effect in marine mammals. This is the crucial connection that is needed to assess risks in marine mammals across all life stages.
The award consisted of 800 Swiss Francs, to attend an academic conference of the winner’s choice in 2017. We would like to thank all the applicants for submitting their diverse and fascinating range of research topics.
