James Tinjum, a recent Eisenhower Graduate Fellow in the University of Wisconsin-Madison department of civil and environmental engineering, will speak on “In Situ Chemical Remediation of Chromium Ore Processing Residue in the Mid-Atlantic Region” noon Friday, Feb. 4, in Acopian Engineering Center room 327.

Chemical remediation is a method of restoring an area that has been polluted.

Free lunch will be provided for the lecture, which is sponsored by the department of civil and environmental engineering.

Tinjum received the 2002 Young Civil Engineer of the Year Award from the Wisconsin section of the American Society of Civil Engineers. The award recognizes professional contributions and accomplishments of early-career engineers. Before pursuing a doctorate in geological engineering, Tinjum practiced as an engineer with RMT, Inc., in Madison. He earned a B.S. and M.A. in civil and environmental engineering from University of Wisconsin-Madison.

He has shared his research in journals such as Sinkholes and the Engineering and Environmental Impacts of Karst: Proceedings of the 9th Mulidisciplinary Conference, Soft Ground Technology, Journal of Geotechnical and Geoenvironmental Engineering, and Geosynthetics.
