Betcha won’t drink it! The natural chemicals hiding in water, and how a new technique hopes to remov
The amount of natural organic matter, or NOM, in water has been increasing for the past 20 years and is expected to increase. Higher amounts of NOM mean more expensive clean water- a high priority especially when considering communities at risk for clean water shortages due to storms. Environmental engineers work on ways to reduce NOM effectively in drinking water treatment plants, and sometimes, this means making unusual allies: bacteria. See the full article here: https://e

Team, I have #scicomm on the brain. Not that surprising, as I’m still channeling that inspiration from the national ComSciCon workshop at Harvard I attended last June and working my butt off with a few other graduate students to plan a local iteration. ComSciCon-Atlanta is happening! (More info on that coming soon.) I’m also in a science communication workshop this semester, run by Dr. David Hu, Dr. Jeffrey Donnel, and Dr. Amanda Gable. The latter two professors are communica
