Proposed Projects (2016)
Our unique program brings together students from environmental engineering, ecology, and environmental chemistry to share their perspectives on remediation and management of biotic and abiotic pollutants. All research projects are within the area of sustainable management to understand the role of environmental science and engineering in managing pollutants in natural systems. Below is a summary list of projects and links to a description of each. Click Here to Apply!
