In July 2019, Prof. Ray received the University of Washington Royalty Research Fund in partnership with the Washington Research Foundation. The award funds research on a new stormwater composite material to remove contaminants in sediments.
We took a break from research to enjoy the sun at Golden Gardens and play spikeball!
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.
Congratulations to Jessica Steigerwald! Jessica was awarded the National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP) to support her PhD research. Awesome job, Jessica!
Meanwhile, next door, Katya is building column filters to treat groundwater contaminated with excess fluoride.
The lab is stocked and ready for research!
