Summer fun at Golden Gardens Beach
We took a break from research to enjoy the sun at Golden Gardens and play spikeball!
Daaniya & Max join the lab this summer
We are very happy to be working with Daaniya Iyaz and Max Steiner this summer! Max and Daaniya received the CoMotion Mary Gates Innovation Scholars Internship to work with Dr. Katya Cherukumilli and Global Water Labs to optimize methods to treat fluoride in groundwater and trace metals in industrial wastewater.

Katya presents at the 2019 UW Waterhackweek
Dr. Cherukumilli presents her team’s proposed “Groundwater Quality Map App” as part of the 2019 WaterHackWeek. Katya managed a team of participants to design an app to map groundwater contaminant profiles in California using large data sets from the USGS. Great job, Katya!
Building columns for groundwater remediation
Meanwhile, next door, Katya is building column filters to treat groundwater contaminated with excess fluoride.
Getting the lab ready
The lab is stocked and ready for research!
