A team led by a doctoral student from the McKelvey School of Engineering at Washington University in St. Louis won first place at the Second Annual Intelligent Water Systems Challenge, hosted by the Illinois Water Environment Association.

Jiasi Sun, a doctoral student in the Department of Energy, Environmental & Chemical Engineering, teamed with a student from Southern Illinois University Carbondale. Sun is a member of the lab of Zhen (Jason) He, professor of energy, environmental & chemical engineering.

The purpose of the challenge is to encourage high school and college students to develop solutions for real-world environmental problems with the use of advanced data analytics, artificial intelligence and machine learning. The goal of this challenge is to promote the use of advanced tools and predictive analytics for common problems in the water and environmental industry.
In 2022, a team led by students from He’s lab won second place in the same challenge.
