CE Masters Student Yanan Ma Will Present Research Poster At ASCE Conference

SCE civil engineering masters student Yanan Ma will be presenting her research poster, Watershed-level Analysis of Urban Raingarden Performance, at the ASCE Environment and Water Resources national conference in Cincinnati this May. Her research, conducted with her faculty advisor, Dr. Deb O’Bannon, examines how well raingardens can reduce urban flooding and improve water quality by reducing pollution in storm water. Yanan received two competitive awards, the Zonta Club of Kansas City, Missouri II Award and the Eleanor Brantley Schwartz Award, administered by the UMKC Women’s Council Graduate Assistance Fund (GAF). The awards will fund Yanan’s expenses to present her research at the ASCE conference.
