The five-year, $510,000 grant will allow the assistant professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering to advance research in water security and environmental protection, while preparing future science, technology, engineering and mathematics professionals.
The professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering has made a career of improving the lives of others through humanitarian engineering. Now, thanks to two major awards, he will expand these efforts in the U.S. and abroad.
The award honors alumni who have made outstanding contributions professionally, academically and in service to the University. In 2019, Roco founded Sanzo, the first Asian-inspired sparkling water, whose mission is to bridge cultures by connecting people to authentic flavors.
With funding from the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection’s Environmental Education Grant Program, Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering Aaron Wemhoff and a team of staff members and students are educating the Villanova community about Earth-friendly food choices.
