Everett Horner, Fall 2023, Winter 2024
Everett is a fifth-year student pursuing a BSc in Civil-Environmental Engineering. He is dedicated to using engineering to achieve positive social and community impacts. For his DRA, Everett is profiling in vitro biological activity in sediment to identify the potential for sediment-bound organic contaminants to contribute towards exposure in aquatic organisms. Outside of the lab, Everett can be found volunteering across campus and he has recently taken up bartending!
Alex Zhou, Fall 2021, Winter 2022
Alex completed his BS.c in Civil-Environmental Engineering in 2023 (University of Alberta). In his last year, he joined the Arlos Lab for an 8-month Dean's Research Award focused on evaluating the estrogenicity, cytotoxicity, and mutagenicity patterns within the municipal wastewater treatment plants in Calgary. He quantifed the extent to which these biological activities can be removed by conventional and advanced wastewater treatment systems.
Seth Bumagat, Winter 2021, Winter 2022
Seth was the first Dearn's Research Award (DRA) student in the Arlos Lab. During his first DRA, he streamlined the process for data visualization and analysis of emerging substances of concern (ESOCs) data collected by the City of Calgary. After a successful DRA, he continued as a NSERC USRA student in the summer 2021. Seth came back to the Arlos Lab as DRA student in 2022. At this time, he worked closed with Emily Quecke on the analysis of water quality data collected from the Philippines. He extended this DRA by exploring the relationship and the value system of Filipinos towards clean water.
Katrina Cereno, Winter 2022
Katrina completed her Dean's Research Award with the Arlos Lab in Winter 2022. She worked on the mass balance analysis of micropollutant loading into the urban sections of the Bow River in Calgary . She was able to connect with the whole team and expand her knowledge in the water resources field of engineering. She loves watching Grey’s Anatomy and The Office while studying!
Pramaya Kannel, WInter 2022
Pramaya is an undergraduate co-op student pursuing a BSc in Civil Engineering. He is passionate about societal development through use of sustainable water, land and air resources. For his DRA, he worked with Dr. Arlos visualizing and analyzing trends of Athabasca River Oil Sands Monitoring project. Pramaya is a huge soccer fan and enjoys outdoors.
