Gerardo Martinez

The Office of Fraternity and Sorority Affairs would like to acknowledge and congratulate Gerardo Martinez on winning second place for his research presentation on "Nutrient Removal Study of Madison County Constructed Wetland" at the New York Water Environment Association, Inc,.'s 85th Annual Meeting in New York City. Gerardo Martinez is a brother of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. and is a junior in LC Smith College of Engineering. He is currently working on his own research project funded partly by Syracuse Center of Excellence and Syracuse University. His project focuses on the Madison County Constructed Wetland in Madison, NY. His main goal is to determine whether the waste water entering the wetland is being filtered before reaching a stream which then leads to a large river. He has presented his research at many conferences including the New York Water Environment Association, Inc.’s 85th Annual Meeting in New York City, at the Syracuse Center of Excellence Student Symposium, and his latest presentation, in January 2014, at the National Collegiate Research Conference at Harvard University. Gerardo was chosen as one of the 150 top undergraduate researchers in the nation. Not only was he able to attend the conference and present his research, he was able to win 3rd place out of the 150 participants. Thus far Gerardo has placed at all the presentations he has given. Although Gerardo is a civil engineering major, he wishes to pursue his masters degree in environmental engineering and focusing on helping improve our waters all over the nation. Water is a necessity to live and he feels that we can help improve our water quality one step at a time.
