TranLIVE Student of the Year | 2015

Name: Alexander J. Johnson

Enrolled in: Syracuse University

Student Bio

Alex J. Johnson received his bachelor's in Environmental Science from Iowa State University in 2014, graduating magna cum laude. He conducted undergraduate research in a project measuring carbon fluxes in agricultural watersheds, and participated in a National Science Foundation REU Project (Research Experiences for Undergraduates) at the University of Notre Dame for one summer while an undergraduate at Iowa State.

Johnson entered the graduate program at Syracuse University in the summer of 2014. He started work on his MS research focusing on vehicle-emitted trace metal pollutants in stormwater runoff from building roofs. Johnson has conducted numerous field experiments in dry and wet weather in Syracuse, and has become skilled at operating the Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometer which analyzes trace metals. He supervises three undergraduate students in this research, and has served as a Teaching Assistant for a required sophomore class where he had his own recitation section. Johnson has taken eight graduate courses at Syracuse University, earning a 4.0. He expects to receive his master's degree in Environmental Engineering in May 2014, at which time he will enter the doctorate program. Johnson is being nominated for the Student of the Year Award due to his highly productive research, his excellent supervisory skills in working with undergraduates, his outstanding academic performance, his presentations at professional meetings, and his leadership in the Syracuse University Student Chapter of the American Society of Engineering Education.
