All of us at SERC are pleased to welcome Dr. Eileen Cashman as a new SERC faculty research associate. Eileen is a Professor in the Environmental Resources Engineering department at HSU. She is an alumna of the ERE Department where she received her B.S. degree in 1984. She went on to the University of Wisconsin, Madison where she received an M.S. in Energy Policy and Analysis and a Ph.D. in Civil and Environmental Engineering. After her student work and prior to returning to teach at HSU, Eileen worked for Pacific Gas and Electric Company, Wisconsin Energy Corporation, the US Geological Survey and James Madison University. At SERC, Eileen is currently involved in the feasibility study for hydroelectric resources for the Yurok tribe and the H2E3 university curriculum project (see the project update section to learn more about these projects). A little known fact is that Eileen teamed with SERC director Peter Lehman to form the double play combination for the engineering softball team in the early 1980s.
