Robert Powell, 62, of Davis, has been appointed science adviser at the California Natural Resources Agency. Powell will advise the Brown administration on the complex scientific issues involved in well stimulation treatments and will assist in developing the scope of the independent scientific study required by Senate Bill 4.

Powell has been a faculty member at UC Davis since 1984 and is on sabbatical from his positions as professor in the chemical engineering and materials science department and the food science and technology department.

He served as chairman of the University of California Academic Senate from 2012 to 2013 and was vice chair from 2011 to 2012.

Powell was an associate professor at Washington University in St. Louis from 1979 to 1984. He earned doctor of philosophy and master of science degrees in mechanics and materials science from Johns Hopkins University.

This position does not require Senate confirmation and there is no compensation. Powell is a Democrat.

Ruihong Zhang, professor of biological and agricultural engineering at UC Davis, gave a lunchtime address at the California Bioresources Alliance Symposium held recently in Sacramento — and she came away with the symposium’s Achievement Award.

The alliance recognized her for “outstanding research incorporating good science and practicality in seeking solutions to agricultural organic waste problems, by transforming them into useful products.”

Zhang joined the UC Davis faculty in the fall of 1995 and became the director of the university’s Biogas Energy Project in 2006, seeking new methods to convert a variety of organic residues into biogas fuels and other valuable products. This technology moved from laboratory to pilot plant to commercial use in 2012.
