With the CAHNRS Business Center staff reduction, their purchasing related responsibilities will be delegated to our department soon. The department’s office has conducted a successful search for a BSE Fiscal Specialist 1 position. Our new BSE Fiscal Specialist 1 is Mr. Marcelo Martinez.
Marcelo has been going through the Workday related training for the last several days and we hope he will be ready to gradually take over all purchasing processes from the business center.
Marcelo’s office phone number is 509-335-0194, and his email address is email@example.com. Marcelo, welcome to the Biological Systems Engineering family. We are delighted to have you in our department.
With the CAHNRS business center losing the last personnel related staff member, the BSE Office initiated a search for an Administrative Assistant 2 (Payroll) permanent position in early February. After reviewing applications and conducting interviews, the search committee unanimously agreed to offer this position to Miss Nina Willis. Most faculty and staff located in Pullman have known Nina since April 2019 when she joined the BSE office as an hourly Clerical Assistant student employee.
We are confident that all of us will appreciate Nina’s professionalism, work ethics, and kindness. At this point, the other BSE Office Staff have started introducing Nina to very complex payroll/personnel policies, procedures, and Workday/myWSU/MyPassport steps and actions.

RICHLAND, Wash. – Researchers at Washington State University Tri-Cities have been awarded a National Science Foundation I-Corps grant to explore the market potential of their biojet fuel research.
The team has successfully demonstrated a new, water-based process for deconstructing and recovering lignin from biomass and converting it into jet fuel-range hydrocarbons. These could be certified as jet fuel in the future.
Bin Yang, WSU Tri-Cities professor of biological systems engineering and principal investigator for the grant, holds a patent on the process.
For his research as a Ph.D. student of Biological Systems Engineering at WSU, Suraj Amatya, a Ph.D. graduate in 2015, recently received second place in an international competition at the ASABE Annual Meeting in Orlando, FL. He received the Boyd-Scott Graduate Research Award. List of winners
