Buet alumna wins award at nanotechnology conference in California
Tashfia Mohona, a former student of Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (Buet), has been recognised for her research on sustainable use of nanotechnology at the 2017 Sustainable Nanotechnology Organization (SNO) Conference. A graduate student of environmental engineering at the University at Buffalo (UB) in New York, US, Tashfia earned the SNO Student Award along with 20 graduate and four undergraduate students, based on their potential and contribution in the field of sustainable nanotechnology, according to the university news bulletin. The conference took place in  California on November 5-7. Another student of the university, Zachary Shepard, also won the award at the undergraduate level. Both Tashfia and Shepard were mentored by Nirupam Aich, assistant professor at the department of civil, structural and environmental engineering in the University at Buffalo, who is also a Buet alumnus. Tashfia is currently working with Nirupam on a research that focuses on understanding the environmental implications, environmental fate and the transportation of novel, two-dimensional and emerging nanomaterials to avoid unintended consequences of nanotechnology. Shepard, a final-year engineering student at the Assumption College, has worked with Nirupam for 10 weeks under UB's Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) programme. The SNO is a professional society comprised to support the development of sustainable nanotechnology for the improvement of society, environment and human health. “Representatives from the AichLENS group attend this conference every year, and compete against students throughout the country,” Nirupam said. “The past two years, we were fortunate enough to display some of the research at UB to the SNO community, and win significant awards. We’re very proud of Tashfia and Zach, and want them to continue growing.” Tashfia Mohona completed BSc in civil engineering in 2015 at Buet, while her mentor, Nirupam, finished BSc in chemical engineering back in 2009.
