For his work on wetland and stream restoration, François Birgand, NC State associate professor of biological and agricultural engineering, won an Internationalization Seed Grant from the NC State Office of Global Engagement and the Committee on International Programs.
He was one of five faculty from across the university who received grants, which are designed to “foster meaningful, collaborative, global scholarship and engagement,” according to the university announcement.
An environmental engineer who earned his doctoral degree in biological and agricultural engineering from NC State, Birgand conducts research in a number of areas including the impacts of land use changes on hydrology and water quality, on wetland and stream monitoring, restoration and modeling.
He’ll focus his seed grant research on stream restoration in particular.
