Her work includes critical assessments of environmental policy, and social and environmental impacts that result from the implementation of new technologies or regulations. She is a professor of Environmental Health Sciences in the School of Public Health, and a professor in the Energy and Resources Group, and is the Wood-Calvert Professor in Engineering. Koshland currently serves as associate director of the UC Berkeley Superfund Basic Research Program.
The International Congress provides a forum for advanced learning with an emphasis on internationally-known speakers and advanced scientific and engineering research presentations. It is sponsored by Louisiana State University, the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, the National Science Foundation, and the Superfund Research Program.
The award honors the contributions of Adel F. Sarofim for advancing the understanding of the mechanisms of pollutant emissions from combustors. He passed away in December, 2011, at the age of 77.
