Lenny Winkel, group leader of Environmental Inorganic Geochemistry within the Department Water Resources & Drinking Water and professor at ETH’s Institute of Biogeochemistry and Pollutant Dynamics, was selected to be the European Association of Geochemistry (EAG) Distinguished Lecturer 2017. The selection is based on a combination of outstanding research contributions to geochemistry and the ability to clearly communicate these contributions to a broad audience.
Lenny Winkel is EAG Distinguished Lecturer 2017. The European Association of Geochemistry started this Program in 2011. It aims to introduce and motivate scientists and students located in under-represented regions of the world to emerging research areas in geochemistry and currently focuses on Central and Eastern Europe. The Distinguished Lecturer of 2016 held his lectures in Kiev, Bucharest, Ljubljana and Krakow.
At Eawag, Lenny Winkel’s research focuses on molecular to global scale biogeochemical processes that control the mobility and cycling of health-impacting elements in the environment as well as the effects of environmental stresses, such as human activities and climate change on trace element cycles.
