About
Lea-Rachel Kosnik is a Professor of Economics at the University of Missouri-St. Louis. She received her BA and MA from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, and her PhD from the University of California, Los Angeles. Her research focuses on renewable energy and climate change, and she is considered a leading expert on the topic of hydroelectric energy generation in the U.S., and hydropower regulation by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. In recent years her research has expanded to include analyses of the academic economics profession itself, including with a focus on gender issues and DEI initiatives. Methodologically, her skill set includes textual analysis and natural language processing, along with traditional econometric techniques. In 2016 she received an honorable mention for article of the year from *Contemporary Economic Policy*, and in 2022 she gave the keynote address to the Illinois Economics Association. Dr. Kosnik is perhaps best known (in a service capacity) as the Association of Environmental and Resource Economist’s (AERE’s) Midwest representative, annually organizing the full track of AERE-sponsored environmental sessions at the Midwest Economic Association meetings. Dr. Kosnik has also served as President, Past-President, and Board Member of the Transportation and Public Utilities Group (TPUG), and as a Department Chair.

Example environmental engineering projects

How can companies collaborate more effectively with researchers, experts, and thought leaders to make progress on environmental engineering?

Environmental Impact Assessment for a Manufacturing Plant

An Environmental Engineering expert can conduct a comprehensive assessment of the environmental impact of a manufacturing plant. This includes evaluating air and water pollution, waste generation, and resource consumption. The researcher can provide recommendations to minimize the plant's environmental footprint and ensure compliance with regulations, leading to improved sustainability and reduced environmental risks.

Designing Sustainable Water Treatment Systems

Collaborating with an Environmental Engineering researcher can help companies design and implement sustainable water treatment systems. The expert can analyze water quality, develop innovative treatment technologies, and optimize processes to ensure efficient and cost-effective water treatment. This can lead to improved water resource management, reduced water pollution, and enhanced operational efficiency.

Developing Renewable Energy Solutions

An academic researcher in Environmental Engineering can assist companies in developing renewable energy solutions. They can conduct feasibility studies, design renewable energy systems, and optimize energy generation and storage. By leveraging their expertise, companies can reduce reliance on fossil fuels, lower carbon emissions, and contribute to a more sustainable energy future.

Waste Management Strategy for a Construction Project

Working with an Environmental Engineering expert, companies can develop effective waste management strategies for construction projects. The researcher can analyze waste generation, recommend recycling and reuse options, and implement waste reduction measures. This can lead to cost savings, reduced environmental impact, and improved waste management practices.

Environmental Compliance and Regulatory Support

Companies can benefit from the expertise of an Environmental Engineering researcher in ensuring compliance with environmental regulations. The expert can provide guidance on environmental permits, conduct audits, and develop strategies to meet regulatory requirements. This can help companies avoid penalties, maintain a positive reputation, and demonstrate a commitment to environmental stewardship.
