Following the 8.8-magnitude earthquake in Chile in 2010, Larry Roesner, Harold H. Short Chair of Civil Engineering Infrastructure Systems at Colorado State University, helped a team of urban water experts explore rebuilding the country’s water infrastructure.

Roesner will speak about his experiences in Chile, and offer an update on reconstruction progress, on Tuesday, March 22 in Denver as part of the university’s Innovation Breakfast series. The talk, “Rebuilding Chile’s Water Infrastructure after the 2010 Earthquake,” will be 7:30-9 a.m. at the Sheraton Denver Tech Center, 7007 S. Clinton St. The event is open to the public; cost is $20 and reservations are encouraged by calling (970) 491-3358 or by e-mailing supportengineering@colostate.edu.

Also in Denver, on April 5, Carmen Menoni, a professor of electrical and computer engineering at Colorado State University, will discuss emerging applications for extreme ultraviolet technology at the Sheraton Denver West, 360 W. Union Blvd. In 2008, Menoni helped to develop a tabletop microscope that R&D Magazine recognized as one of the top 100 most significant technological advances that year. Her presentation on April 5 will include additional applications for using EUV light.

The Innovations Breakfast Series provides an opportunity for alumni and members of the community to learn more about university programs, technological trends and innovative research projects.
