Join us as we showcase several of our 40 under 40 Recognition Program recipients using a popular Japanese-inspired presentation format called a PechaKucha.

What exactly is a PechaKucha? 

A PechaKucha celebrates people, passion and creative thoughts. The event will consist of four speakers each showing 20 slides and presenting for about 6 and a half minutes.  We will have a few minutes in between each presentation for some Q & A. You will gain knowledge on four different topics in under an hour!  

AAEES members will earn 1.5 PDHs for attending.

Samik Bachi

Samik Bagchi, Ph.D., BCES
Director of Innovation
Digested Organics

Dr. Samik Bagchi has more than 15 years of experience in waste/wastewater treatment processes. In his current role as Director of Innovation at Digested Organics, he oversights the development and operation of the advanced filtration systems for complex industrial waste stream and agri-wastewater. Before joining DO, he worked as a process specialist at Black & Veatch. Samik did his PhD on anammox process and focused on high strength wastewater treatment and water resource recovery using advance filtration.

Dr. Bachi is an AAEES Board Certified Environmental Scientist with a specialty in Environmental Microbiology.

Innovative membrane-based approach for high-strength industrial wastewater reuse

An industrial fermentation facility is scaling up a process that will generate about 800,000 GPD of high strength wastewater. Using a unique fouling resistant membrane combined with our innovative approach, we have been able provide a sustainable treatment solution that makes it a ZLD facility.


Rosaleen Nogle

Rosaleen B. Nogle, P.E., BCEE, CFM
(she/her/hers)
Principal Sanitary Engineer
Buffalo Sewer Authority

Ms. Nogle is an AAEES Board Certified Environmental Engineer with a specialty in Water Supply and Wastewater.

Getting Creative with Engineering Management: Why change is needed in engineering management; questions to ask to challenge the way we have always done things; potential solutions.

Engineering management, especially in the public sector has traditionally relied upon engineers (licensed and with EIT certifications) to do a host of tasks.

Abhishek RoyChowdhury, Ph.D.
Assistant Professor
Navajo Technical University

Dr. RoyChowdhury is an AAEES Member.

Decade long water issues, spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the road forward: An untold story from the Navajo Nation

"The Navajo Nation, the largest Native American Tribe in the US, has an area of over 27,000 square miles, but over 30% of the Navajo residents do not have access to public water supply. In summer 2020 the Navajo Nation registered the highest per capita COVID-19 infection rate in the US which can be directly linked to the poor water quality in the community. This presentation will demonstrate the reasons behind the poor water quality in the Navajo Nation, its impact on adverse health implications of Navajo communities, how it has contributed to the rapid spread of the COVID-19 pandemic across the Navajo Nation, and some of the ongoing community level initiatives to address the water issues."

Ms. Lono-Batura is an AAEES Board Certified Environmental Scientist with a specialty in Sustainable Science.

A Voice for Biosolids: Telling Our Story

The Clean Water Act of 1972 was a landmark ruling aimed to protect the navigable waters of the United States. ‘Pollution Control Facilities’ were brought online to answer the call to produce clean water in addition to renewable energy and biosolids. Fast forward 50 years, we’ve witnessed the power these facilities have had to catalyze nature and create healthier ecosystems that depend on clean water. Of these recovered resources, biosolids has made significant strides in demonstrating its self-worth through decades of research and practical applications and yet has often been seen as an ‘arrow off the map’. Learn how WEF is attempting to flip the script and elevate the voice for biosolids in impactful conversations surrounding climate change, product quality, and flusher engagement.
