The International Ultraviolet Association has announced that Karl Linden, Ph.D., professor of environmental engineering at CU-Boulder, is serving as the organization’s next president.

In his new role, Linden, who has been involved in the research and development of UV technology since the early 1990s, plans to work with the IUVA’s board of directors and members to provide unique educational opportunities and improve regions beyond North America through the use of UV technology. While doing so, Linden is expected to work jointly with partner organizations and create new industry alliances.

“I look forward to engaging the passions of our board of directors and membership in creating programs, webinars and essential educational content for the organization and our constituencies,” Linden says.

Following Linden’s term, Kati Bell, an environmental engineer and principal with CDM Smith in Nashville, will take over the president role for IUVA in 2015. Bell has experience working with water and wastewater treatment facilities and graduated from Vanderbilt University and Tennessee Technological University.
