Doc. dr. sc. Vilimu Filipoviću nagrada '2019 Soil Science Society of America Early Career award'

Američko tloznanstveno društvo (Soil Science Society of America - SSSA) koje broji više od 6000 aktivnih članova dodijelilo je nagradu 2019 Soil Science Society of America Early Career award doc. dr. sc. Vilimu Filipoviću s Agronomskoga fakulteta Sveučilišta u Zagrebu. Nagrada se dodjeljuje mladim znanstvenicima koji su postigli izniman uspjeh u području znanosti o tlu u ranom stadiju karijere (unutar 7 godina od doktorata). Ovo je veliko priznanje s obzirom na to da je nagrada prvi put dodijeljena nekome izvan Amerike.


Nagrada je dodijeljena tijekom 2019 ASA-CSSA-SSSA International Annual Meeting 11. studenoga u San Antoniju u Teksasu. Nominaciju za nagradu su predložili: dr. Horst H. Gerke (ZALF, Njemačka), dr. David Robinson (CEH, Velika Britanija), prof. Jirka Šimůnek (University of California, SAD), dr. Keith Bristow (CSIRO, Australija) i dr. Brent Clothier (Plant & Food Research, Novi Zeland).


Izjava SSSA za medije na engleskom jeziku:

Vilim Filipović is Assistant Professor of Soil Hydrology at the University of Zagreb, Faculty of Agriculture, Croatia. Dr. Filipović received his Ph.D. from the University of Zagreb, after which he worked as a Postdoc at INRA, in France. In his research, he made progress in understanding transport processes in soil by applying novel modelling approaches and examining the possibilities of decreasing environmental pressure originating from agriculture on soil and water resources.

His research is focusing on preferential flow and non-equilibrium transport processes in heterogeneous soils, fate of soil contaminants (e.g., nutrients, pesticides, trace metals, pharmaceuticals) and numerical modeling within the vadose zone. He has led international projects with CEH, INRA, ZALF, BOKU and CSIRO. He is raising awareness of environmental soil physics through teaching and extension activities in the southeastern Europe. Vilim is involved in various committees and boards and serves as an Associate Editor for the Soil Science Society of America Journal (SSSAJ).

Čestitamo!
