Ming-Han Li, associate professor of landscape architecture at Texas A&M, was elected to a leadership position and honored for his service in the Council of Educators in Landscape Architecture during the organization's 2012 conference held last March at the University of Illinois.
CELA advocates for landscape architecture programs, provides a forum for dialogue about landscape architectural education and fosters and disseminates landscape architectural scholarship.
Li was chosen as CELA’s 2012-2014 vice president for research, a term that includes membership in the organization's executive committee. He also received CELA's Outstanding Communications Award, which recognizes landscape architecture educators who have coordinated abstract and paper reviews for CELA’s annual conferences since 2008.
Li, who joined the Texas A&M faculty in 2003, is interested in stormwater management, bioretention, soil erosion control, streambank bioengineering and sustainable landscape technology.
He earned two degrees at Texas A&M, a Ph.D. in Urban and Regional Science in 2002 and a Master of Landscape Architecture degree in 1998.
