UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — Bruce Logan, Evan Pugh University Professor and Kappe Professor of Environmental Engineering in the Penn State College of Engineering, has been named a fellow of the International Society for Microbial Electrochemistry and Technology (ISMET).

ISMET fellowship is the “highest grade of membership in ISMET” and is bestowed on “those who have made outstanding contributions to the research field and ISMET Society,” according to the ISMET website. The mission of the organization is to “link researchers from various areas of science and engineering towards studying the complex interactions of microorganisms and electrodes, while finding novel ways to use them for sustainability applications.”

Logan, whose tenure home is in The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, with courtesy appointments in chemical engineering and the mechanical engineering departments at Penn State, became the director of the Institutes for Energy and the Environment in August of this year. Logan's research focuses on renewable energy production, the development of an energy sustainable water infrastructure, desalination and green hydrogen gas from water electrolysis.

Logan has authored publications, received numerous awards and honors for his work and has been appointed visiting professor at several universities around the world. He is a member of the National Academy of Engineering and a fellow of the International Water Association and the Water Environment Foundation.
