Ph.D. Candidate Spencer Tassone was recently selected to receive the Rath Public Service Focused Research Award by the University of Virginia Research Achievement Awards committee for his work on riverine heatwaves.
The Bhakta Rath Research Award, established in 2022 by a gift from Dr. Bhakta B. Rath and his wife, Sushama Rath, offers an opportunity to promote and reward excellence in Public Impact Research (PIR). The award recognizes those who conduct exceptional research in anticipation of the future needs of the nation while supporting potential advances in PIR, and will continue to apply this knowledge upon establishing a career within the U.S. or its territories.
