Troy University recognizes faculty, staff for grant writing success

Six Troy University faculty and staff members have been honored with the Chancellor’s Award of Distinction in Sponsored Programs for their successful grant-writing efforts in 2017.

The presentations were made during the University’s 26th annual Sponsored Programs Recognition Luncheon held last month on the Troy Campus.

Dr. Chris Boyd of TROY’s Department of Biological and Environmental Sciences, and Dr. Xutong Niu of the Department of Mathematics and Geomatics, were honored for their project “Living Shoreline Suitability Model Transfer to Selected Water Bodies with the Gulf of Mexico: A GIS and Remote Sensing Based Approach.” The project, funded through a $519,853 grant from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Restore Act Science Program, seeks to identify where living shorelines are the most appropriate erosion control solution to protect shorelines at various sites along the Gulf of Mexico. Living shorelines are an infrastructure technique that makes use of native vegetation alone or in combination with off-shore structures to stabilize shorelines, providing a natural alternative to the use of stone or bulkheads.
