Dr. Maricar Prudente is one of the recipients of the 2015 National Achievement Award of the National Research Council of the Philippines in view of her research works in Science and Science Education. Her recent research involvements include: as the Research Team Leader of a UNIDO-funded research on National Inventory of POPs in the Philippines; as Lead researcher of the DOST-NRCP Project no. A-100 entitled “Drawing Best Practices of Community Adaptation to Climate Change: Implications to Institutional Program Development”; and as Assistant Project Leader of the 3rd Graduate Tracer Study funded by the Commission on Higher Education. In the field of science education, Dr. Prudente’s research work is focused on action research and the integration of technology and 21st century skills in the teaching of science. As an ecotoxicologist, she has been actively participating in numerous international research projects and scientific conferences dealing with environmental issues and concerns either as a participating scientist, resource person or as facilitator. Dr. Prudente is likewise involved in an international cooperative research project on the Monitoring of New POPs in Human Breast Milk in Southeast Asian countries under a Center for Marine and Environmental Studies (CMES) Research Grant and as collaborating scientist on a research project with Kumamoto University funded by Japan Science and Technology (JST), which dealt with monitoring the chemical pollutants in central Visayas affected by typhoon Haiyan.

Dr. Michael Angelo B. Promentilla is a recipient of the 2013 Outstanding Young Scientist Award from the Philippine National Academy of Science and Technology (NAST). He obtained his B.S. in Chemical Engineering (cum laude) from the University of the Philippines Los Banos (UPLB) where he also worked as a junior faculty in the Chemical Engineering Department at UPLB since 1997 until 2003. He received his M.S. in Chemical Engineering from the University of the Philippines Diliman (UPD) in 2000. He was also awarded with the Monbukagakusho scholarship for his doctorate degree. He did his postdoctoral work for six months on the application of multiple criteria decision modeling on contaminated sites and waste management at Hokkaido University. He was also awarded for two years with postdoctoral fellowship and research grant by the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) to conduct study on the application of X-ray microtomography to characterize the microstructure of cement-based materials. Results of his research activities and accomplishments are published in peer-reviewed and ISI-listed journals, and are also presented in both local and international conferences, workshops, and symposia. He is also a regular member of the Division of Engineering and Industrial Research of the National Research Council of the Philippines. His work finds applications in civil engineering, chemical engineering, environmental engineering, environment impact Assessment, and renewable energy.
