UNR Professor Krishna Pagilla, Ph.D. Elected a Fellow of the ASCE
After receiving his Ph.D. in environmental engineering from University of California, Berkeley in 1994, Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering Chair Krishna Pagilla has embarked on a career that, to date, has resulted in more than 200 publications and more than $10 million in research grant funding. Most recently, he received an award of $1.8 million to study COVID-19 prevalence through wastewater surveillance.
In recognition of these accomplishments, the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) has elected him as a fellow. The honor is given to only 3 percent of its membership of 150,000 engineering professionals.
About the honor, Pagilla said, “Being a civil and environmental engineer, this recognition by ASCE as a Fellow is a proud moment in my career. I hope it adds to the visibility of the CEE department and the University as having as many top-rated faculty in the nation as we do.”
