Hartford, and the University of Connecticut, where he studied graphic
design, illustration, photography, printmaking, entomology, and
When he isn't bottling the latest
stormwater composite sample, fiddling with a voltmeter, identifying
insects, playing disc golf, bass guitar, or knitting socks, Shawn will
be at home with his wife Luma, making a big batch of makloube!
Dan Line, PE
Dan has worked as an Extension Specialist in the NCSU
Water Quality Group of the Biological and Agricultural Engineering
Dept. since 1991. He holds BS and MS degrees in Agricultural

|Sarah Waickowski, EI
Sarah Waickowski grew up in the great town of Fellsmere, FL and attended the University of Florida. She earned her B.S. in Civil Engineering with a specialization in Water Resources in December 2012. Her interest in stormwater grew after competing in the Florida Water Environment Association (FWEA) Student Design competition. She helped to treat runoff from a bridge by designing the conveyance network and identifying the site's hydrologic characteristics. Sarah moved to Raleigh, NC and joined the Stormwater Engineering Group after completing her second internship with Duke Energy Progress at their Brunswick Nuclear Power Plant. She is pursuing her M.S. in Biological and Agricultural Engineering under the direction of Dr. Bill Hunt. At NC State, Sarah's research will focus on gross solids, or large particles, collected in catch basins throughout various municipalities in the Piedmont and Coastal regions. She hopes to identify the pollutant loadings associated with these particles and determine if removing them will help to treat stormwater. Sarah expects to find all sorts of treasures in her sampling adventures.
In her spare time, Sarah enjoys practicing yoga and exploring the great state of North Carolina. She is avid fan of baseball and roots for her beloved Boston Red Sox any chance she can get. Although she is a diehard Florida Gators fan, she has embraced the Wolfpack and welcomes the opportunity to beat the Florida State Seminoles twice in one athletic season!
|Kevin Koryto, EI (M.S. Candidate, class of 2016)
Hailing from the great state of Michigan, Kevin grew up in East Lansing, MI before walking across the street to complete his undergraduate degree in Biosystems Engineering at Michigan State University. During his undergraduate degree Kevin researched nutrient removal of aquatic plants, investigated soil moisture sensor accuracy during an REU at the University of Florida, and assisted in the creation of design plans for created forested wetland. These experiences advanced his interest in stormwater management and Kevin was set to come to Raleigh in 2011 to work with the Stormwater Team. However, 22 years in one town created the desire for a bigger move and Kevin spent the past 3 years teaching high school math as a Peace Corps volunteer in Lesotho followed by a stint teaching Algebra at a charter school in Denver, CO, experiences he loved, before finally making his way to Raleigh excited as ever in the Summer of 2014.
Under the direction of Dr. Hunt, Kevin is pursuing a M.S. in Biological and Agricultural Engineering. His research focus will be on evaluating the hydrologic and water quality benefits of a novel storm water control measure, regenerative stormwater conveyance, at a newly constructed site in Durham, NC. Kevin is excited to study a device that pushes stormwater management to new applications and integrates stream restoration processes.
Enjoying everything outside, Kevin is excited to take advantage of the warm Raleigh weather and especially enjoys biking and running the Raleigh greenways. An avid college sports fan, Go State, is now the motto!
|Charlie Stillwell, EI
Charlie was born in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Asheville, NC, then at age nine moved to Cincinnati, OH. After high school, he moved to Philadelphia to attend Drexel University for civil engineering. As an undergrad, Charlie completed internships at a number of different companies, including URS, the Philadelphia Water Department, and Nave Newell, Inc. Charlie was first introduced to stormwater engineering while working with the Sustainable Water Resource Engineering Lab at Drexel. This experience was very rewarding, and encouraged Charlie to pursue a graduate degree at NCSU with the Stormwater Engineering Group.
Charlie's research project, under the guidance of Dr. Hunt, will attempt to measure the effectiveness of low impact development (LID). Ultimately, Charlie wants to investigate LID as a method of mimicking predevelopment hydrologic conditions. LID is an innovative technique which, in theory, minimizes environmental impacts to receiving surface waters. Charlie hopes that his research will provide insight on the relationship between site hydrology and receiving waterways.
Outside of school, Charlie loves all sports, especially watching football and playing soccer. Charlie also loves to travel, and has visited India, China, Japan, Italy, and most of the United States. He is excited to explore more new places, and has the next 4 years to discover all that North Carolina has to offer! In the photo, Charlie is doing his best Indiana Jones impression after hiking through Antelope Canyon…. In 2018, Charlie should be one step closer to imitating Dr. Jones – by earning a PhD degree (in engineering rather than archaeology, but close enough)!
