Weiyi Pan, who earned a doctorate in energy, environmental & chemical engineering from the McKelvey School of Engineering in 2022, has received the 2022 Paul V. Roberts/AEESP Outstanding Doctoral Dissertation Award to for his dissertation “Lead (IV) oxide in drinking water systems: Formation, dissolution, redox-driven recrystallization, and implications for lead control” from the Association of Environmental Engineering and Science Professors (AEESP). This award is given annually to recognize a doctoral thesis that advances the science and practice of water quality engineering. 

Pan received the award June 21 at the 2023 AEESP Research and Education Conference hosted by Northeastern University. The conference had special meaning for Pan because he was the Student Conference Chair when Washington University in St. Louis hosted the 2022 AEESP Conference. Pan also received one of the 2023 CAPEES-Elsevier Dissertation Awards at the Chinese-American Professors in Environmental Engineering and Science (CAPEES) award ceremony held at the AEESP Conference.     

Pan conducted research in the lab of Daniel Giammar, the Walter E. Browne Professor of Environmental Engineering. Pan is a postdoctoral researcher at Yale University.
