Distinguished HSU Alumni

Lonny Grafman
Andrea Achilli
2004, Physical Science and Mathematics

Since graduating from HSU in 2004, Lonny Grafman has served as an instructor in the ERE department as well as started work abroad. He is currently the director of Practivistas Dominicanas, a Spanish immersion and appropriate technology study abroad program, as well as the creator of Appropedia, a collaborative website focusing on sustainable projects, and the CEO of Propelsion, a technology incubator in Humboldt County. Grafman also works as an advisor to many design projects and was named one of HSU's distinguished alumni in the spring of 2015.

Richard Corsi
Rich Corsi
1983, Environmental Resources Engineering

Dr. Richard Corsi, now a professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Texas, Austin, has received international recognition for his research on indoor air quality. "The indoor environment is not the safe, clean sanctuary we thought it was," Dr. Corsi said, "In fact, the exposure of Americans to toxic substances is dominated by what we breathe and touch while we are indoors. Ironically, our focus has been on protecting the public from toxins that exist outdoors." Corsi is now directing a $2.9 million grad program designed to train students in the new field of indoor air quality.
