University of New Orleans Professor Emerita of Sociology Shirley Laska has recently been named to the Science and Engineering Advisory Council of the Water Institute of The Gulf. The newly formed nonprofit organization is expected to play a significant role in determining how coastal restoration funds are used once money starts to flow from fines levied against BP Oil following the 2010 oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. Laska is sociology professor emerita at UNO and founder of UNO's Center for Hazards, Assessment, Response and Technology (CHART), one of the University's most productive research centers.
