Recent Biological Engineering Graduate Receives Fulbright Award
Lillie Haddock, a recent graduate of the Department of Biological and Agricultural Engineering, has received a Fulbright U.S. Student Program award to Australia to study the role of water markets in managing climate change and low-water availability.
Haddock will conduct research at University of Melbourne during the 2022-23 academic year as part of a project that will focus on policy mechanisms to manage declining water availability with the university's Managing Climate Variability and Change Lab Group.
Haddock earned a master's degree in biological engineering this May, having worked with adviser and mentor Brian E. Haggard, professor of biological engineering and director of the Arkansas Water Resources Center.
As a Fulbright participant, Haddock will conduct research, share knowledge and foster meaningful connections across communities in the United States and Australia. The competitive awards consider leadership potential, academic and/or professional achievement and record of service. Fulbright alumni include leaders who are making a difference in their communities and the world, including 61 Nobel Prize laureates, 89 Pulitzer Prize recipients and 40 who have served as a head of state or government.
The Fulbright Program is funded through an annual appropriation made by the U.S. Congress to the U.S. Department of State's Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. Participating governments and host institutions, corporations and foundations around the world also provide direct and indirect support to the program.
Since 1946, the Fulbright Program has provided more than 400,000 participants from over 160 countries the opportunity to study, teach and conduct research, exchange ideas and contribute to finding solutions to shared international concerns.
Jeffrey Wolchok, also well-known for his strong record as a student mentor, will assume his new duties July 1.
