Wenger earns international journal’s award as ‘Excellent Reviewer’
Prof. Emeritus Robert Wenger of Natural and Applied Sciences has just been honored for his second-career work as a manuscript reviewer for a leading international journal. The editors of Waste Management and Research, meeting in September 2014 at their annual conference in Sao Paulo, Brazil, identified Wenger as the journal’s 2013 Excellent Reviewer. Wenger says he has been called upon by editors of academic journals quite regularly during his “retirement years” to review manuscripts. (He’s currently at work on two more.) Notification of the award was made by Prof. Agamuthu Pariatamby of the University of Malaya, editor-in-chief. Wenger, a founding member of the UW-Green Bay faculty in the late 1960s and recipient of emeritus status in 1999, is a mathematician whose modeling and research projects in partnership with biology, ecology and natural sciences colleagues have been widely praised for their positive influence on environmental science.
