Yusheng Guo receives William E. Krauss Director’s Award

Dec. 16, 2021

Congratulations to Yusheng Guo who received the 2021-2022 William E. Krauss Director’s Award for Outstanding Publication by a Graduate Student on behalf of the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences and the Office of Research and Graduate Education. His advisor is Dr. Vlasova.


The College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences (CFAES) translates cutting edge research to stakeholders across Ohio. By engaging with stakeholders, we provide research, technology, and knowledge to support safe, sustainable, and viable agricultural practices across Ohio and the world. This important work could not be accomplished without outstanding researchers working on projects across the college. Dr. William E. Krauss was a faculty member and became the first Associate Director of the Ohio Agricultural Experiment Station serving from 1948 to 1969. The William E. Krauss Award was established through a gift from the William E. Krauss family to recognize excellence in research performed by a doctoral student. This award recognizes a Ph.D. student that has produced a peer reviewed publication of the highest quality.


Yusheng will be recognized at the 2021-2022 CFAES Awards Program which is planned for the morning of January 28, in conjunction with the State of the College Address, as well as at the annual Research Conference in April 2022.
