There are a lot of decisionmaking trade-offs on the path to a sustainable future. Michael Kavanaugh, senior principal at Geosyntec Consultants Inc. and member of the National Academy of Engineering, visited the UH Cullen College of Engineering on Nov. 11 to discuss some of the tough decisions on the road to sustainable development as part of the distinguished Rockwell Lecture Series.

Kavanaugh has delivered his lecture, titled “Reflections on Sustainable Futures: The Trade-Off Challenge,” all over the world, including the Perry McCarty Distinguished Lecture Series at Stanford University’s College of Engineering. Kavanaugh has over 40 years of consulting experience advising private and public sector clients on water quality, water and wastewater treatment, and hazardous waste site remediation issues.

The Rockwell Lecture, named after Elizabeth D. Rockwell in honor of her gift to establish an endowed chair for the dean of engineering, is held annually at the Cullen College. The world’s most renowned engineers and scientists are invited each year to the Cullen College to deliver Rockwell Lectures.
