The 30th Annual International Conference on Soil, Water, Energy, and Air was hosted virtually on March 22-25, 2021 by the Association for Environmental Health and Sciences Foundation. Veronica Gonsalez, PhD student in civil and environmental engineering at Tufts University, received second place in the student paper/presentation competition.

Her presentation was titled "Removing Nitrogen from Groundwater: Evaluating Biokinetics of Denitrification for Effective Treatment." It was based on her MS research, advised by Associate Professor and Associate Chair Andrew Ramsburg and part-time lecturer Paul Dombrowski, both of the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering.

The Conference on Soil, Water, Energy, and Air convenes environmental professionals and enables the sharing of information on new scientific achievements and technological advances as well as the effectiveness of existing environmental regulations and programs. The event included poster and platform sessions presenting case studies, research, and new programs, with workshops, networking events, and virtual exhibit booths available to attendees from across the globe.
