Weaver Lecture Series Presents Dr. Orlando Rojas @ School of Forestry & Wildlife Sciences
Mar 30 @ 3:30 pm – 5:00 pm

The School of Forestry and Wildlife Sciences is proud to present the 2017 Weaver Lecture Series. The first lecture of the two-part series offered this year, will be given by Orlando Rojas, Professor of Biobased Colloids and Materials at Aalto University, Finland.

Professor Rojas’ lecture, titled “Nanocelluloses and Multi-phase Systems,” will discuss the Finnish vision of the future bio-economy and the importance of forests as a resource for lignocellulose, the biomass of woody plants, as the ideal precursor for material design.

Previous to Rojas current faculty position at Aalto University, Finland, he was Professor in the departments of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering and Forest Biomaterials of North Carolina State University.

Earlier in his career he was a senior scientist appointed by the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences in the Royal Institute of Technology, a postdoctoral fellow in the Institute for Surface Chemistry, Sweden and research assistant at Auburn University.

Rojas’ work is centered on the utilization of lignocellulosic materials in novel, high performance applications and the interfacial and the adsorption behaviors of surfactants and biopolymers at solid/liquid interfaces.

Among his many honors and awards, Rojas was appointed as Finland Distinguish Professor (2009-2014) and was elected with the distinction of Fellow of the American Chemical Society (2013) for his scientific and professional contributions.

Most recently, Rojas was the recipient of the 2015 Nanotechnology Division Technical Award and IMERYS Prize for outstanding contributions that have advanced the industry’s technology. He received the Fibrenamics Award (University of Minho, Portugal, 2016) in recognition for his scientific work and impact in the field of advanced materials from lignocellulose.

The School of Forestry and Wildlife Sciences’ Weaver Lecture Series was established in May of 1996 through an endowment provided by Earl H. and Sandra H. Weaver. The objective of the Series is to bring individuals with expertise in various aspects of forestry and wildlife sciences to the Auburn University campus to enhance the School’s academic programs through public lectures and interaction with faculty and students.

The lecture is open to the public and will take place on Thursday, March 30, at 4:00 p.m. at the Forestry and Wildlife Sciences Building at Auburn University. A reception will be held prior to the lecture at 3:30 p.m. For details about the Weaver Lecture Series and to review research abstracts, visit http://wp.auburn.edu/sfws/weaver/.

Weaver Lecture Series Presents Dr. David Fowler @ School of Forestry & Wildlife Sciences
Apr 11 @ 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm

The School of Forestry and Wildlife Sciences is proud to present the 2017 Weaver Lecture Series. The second lecture of the two-part series to be offered this year, will be given by Professor David Fowler, Environmental  of the Natural Environment Research Council, Edinburgh, United Kingdom.

Professor Fowler’s talk, “Impacts of Human Activities on the Global Nitrogen Cycle Through the 21st Century,” will discuss the efficacy of the Earth’s ecosystems, atmosphere and oceans to globally cycle increased fixed nitrogen from human activity.

Professor Fowler trained in Environmental Physics at the University of Nottingham, obtaining a PhD in 1976 from research on the dry deposition of sulfur dioxide by micrometeorological methods. His research focuses on the surface – atmosphere exchange processes of trace gases and particulate matter and has been applied to ozone, acid deposition, the global biogeochemical cycle of nitrogen, emissions of greenhouse gases, atmospheric aerosols and effects of pollutants on vegetation.

Fowler’s work has been widely applied in the development of effects-based pollution control strategies in the United Kingdom and elsewhere in Europe. He was awarded an Honorary Professorship at the University of Nottingham in 1991, became a Fellow of the Royal Society of Edinburgh in 1999, and a Fellow of the Royal Society of London in 2002. In 2005, he was awarded a CBE or Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire for his research of atmospheric pollution.

The School of Forestry and Wildlife Sciences’ Weaver Lecture Series was established in May of 1996 through an endowment provided by Earl H. and Sandra H. Weaver. The objective of the Weaver Lecture Series is to bring experts in various research areas relevant to forestry and wildlife sciences to the Auburn University campus to enhance the School’s academic programs through public lectures and interaction with faculty and students.

The lecture is open to the public and will be held Tuesday, April 11, at 3:30 p.m., in the Forestry and Wildlife Sciences Building, 1101 Conference Room. A reception for Dr. Fowler will be held prior to the lecture at 3:00 p.m.  For details about the Weaver Lecture Series and to review research abstracts, visit http://wp.auburn.edu/sfws/weaver/.
