Maryssa Loehr, a doctoral student in the lab of Jay Turner, professor of energy, environmental & chemical engineering and vice dean for education, has received a $12,000 award from the Airport Cooperative Research Program (ACRP) Graduate Research Awards Program.
The one-year award supports Loehr’s research titled “Ultrafine Particle Ground Level Impacts during Aircraft Approach and Climb Out Operations,” which she will present at the January 2022 annual Transportation Research Board Conference in Washington, DC.
Loehr also is leading the Turner lab’s environmental noise monitoring including low-cost sensor evaluation and spatial and temporal analyses. Her work is focused on deployments in Louisville (KY) as part of the Green Heart Louisville project.
The award is given by the Old Dominion University Research Foundation on behalf of the Virginia Space Grant Consortium, which manages the program.
