Cristina Negri appointed Director of Environmental Science Division
Cristina Negri has been appointed Director of the Environmental Science (EVS) Division. Her appointment is effective Aug.10, 2017.
Negri is a principal agronomist/environmental engineer in the EVS Division. During her 20-plus- year career at Argonne, she has conducted and directed laboratory to full-scale multidisciplinary projects developing technologies and concepts for environmental remediation and stewardship, including soil remediation and water treatment. Her work at Argonne has also involved research focusing on sustainable technologies for urban environmental improvement.
Negri’s current research focuses on the integration of bioenergy systems within working agricultural landscapes to address the food, energy, water and land nexus. Her work has concentrated on developing sustainable, multifunctional landscape concepts, which aim, by design, at the creation of ecosystems services. Negri’s interests are in systems approaches where industrial ecology concepts are applied to water and land management and green infrastructure. She is also a senior Fellow at the Energy Policy Institute and at the Institute for Molecular Engineering at the University of Chicago, and a Fellow of the Northwestern-Argonne Institute for Science and Engineering.
