Weird Water Science: The Beginnings of an Exciting Career
Safe water helps ensure healthier and more productive lives for future generations. I am really proud to be part of the energetic and dedicated faculty and students that work in water science here at MSU. What could be better than carrying on a tradition of weird water science? Not much, I’ve decided.
Do You Know Where Your E. coli Are?
Summer is here, and it is time for vacations and fun activities, such as hiking and swimming. It's also time for you and others to spread E. coli around. Whether you are planning a trip on a cruise ship or just to your local beach, you should also be focused on staying safe and healthy.
Current Research Projects
Ballast water, residual waters taken in by ships that travel the world, may be contributing to the global travel of microorganisms.
Advances in bioinformatics can help provide the framework to keep produce safe for American consumers.
Household water treatment devices are used worldwide to decontaminate drinking water, and those devices are getting better.
By studying sediment cores, research can help determine the best ways to manage historic watersheds that are shaped by climate and human activities.
When storms hit an area, the volume of water that enters a treatment plant can exceed capacity. What happens to the untreated water?
