Dr. Aly Tawfik

Civil engineering professor appointed to California Air Resources Board’s Research Screening Committee

 Dr. Aly Tawfik, professor of civil engineering, has been appointed to California Air Resources Board’s (CARB's) statewide Research Screening Committee (RSC). Dr. Tawfik is the only member on the committee from the California State University system. RSC, the Board's legislatively mandated 11-member committee consists of scientists, engineers, and others knowledgeable, technically qualified, and experienced in air pollution problems. The committee provides guidance on the wide range of proposed and completed research projects relevant to CARB programs.

CARB’s research program was established by the Legislature in 1971 and has formed the basis of CARB’s programs since its inception. The research program’s goals of informing health-based air quality standards, reducing air pollution exposures, and protecting California from the potential impacts of climate change have been met through a diverse portfolio of projects.
