Dr. Kala Vairavamoorthy delivers inaugural lecture in memory of G.V. Loganathan.
Gobichettipalayam Vasudevan “G. V.” Loganathan was an esteemed professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Virgina Tech before the tragic events of 2007. Loganathan’s primary focus was on water related issues and on April 6, Patel College Executive Director, Dr. Kalanithy Vairavarmoorthy will continue Loganathan’s legacy by delivering the inaugural G.V. Loganathan Distinguished Lecture. The presentation is titled “Opportunities for Reinventing Urban Water Management in Cities of the Future.”
The lecture series was established to honor the contributions of scholarship, instruction and service by Loganthan in the area of water resources engineering. It is also meant to honor the memory of Loganathan and that of his 2007 Advanced Hydrology students.
“I met [Loganathan] in 1998 in India at the India Institute of Technology, one of his professors was one of my professors,” recalls Vairavarmoorthy. “A lot of [Loganathan’s] work influenced my work. I valued and looked up to him.”
