Mallott Lab: Exposure to Pollutants and Pathogens and Impact on Health

Research Focus: Our research group examines how exposure to pollutants and pathogens in the environment influence the gut microbiome, subsequently impacting health. Our work is part of the REACH Study (reachresearch.org) in collaboration with Theresa Gildner in Anthropology and Claire Masteller in Earth, Environmental and Planetary Sciences. The REACH Study investigates the environmental and biological […]

Bose Lab: Microbes and the Environment

Lab Manager: Tahina Onina Ranaivoarisoa Research Focus: Our lab studies microbial metabolisms and their influence on biogeochemical cycling using an interdisciplinary approach. We apply the knowledge we gain to generate new ways of addressing issues such as the energy crisis, climate change, pollution, human health, sustainability and the circular economy. Each summer we create a […]

Parker Lab: Chemical and Biological Contaminants in Environmental Systems

Research Focus: Our research group is focused on (1) understanding the behavior of chemical and biological contaminants in environmental systems and (2) optimizing strategies to minimize the risk posed by these contaminants to human and ecosystem health. Some of our current projects include: Skills, techniques, and methods students will use and learn: Students will primarily […]

Xu Atmospheric Chemistry Lab: Wildfires
CE Research Topics

Xu Atmospheric Chemistry Lab: Wildfires

Research Focus: Wildfires pose severe threats to urban air quality. As a result of ongoing climate change and historical fire suppression practices, wildfires in North America became more intense, frequent, and widespread in the 2000s. These trends have significantly impacted urban air quality in the last two decades, offsetting some of the improvements from anthropogenic […]

CE Research Topics

Jun Lab: Harmful Algal Blooms (HABs)

Research Focus 1: Harmful algal blooms (HABs), which can produce cyanobacterial toxins, degrade water quality, threaten public health, harm ecosytems, and impact the economic output of industries such as fisheries and tourism. One major contribution to HABs is nutrient pollution from anthropogenic activities. To address nutrient pollution, we are developing novel mineral-hydrogel composites to effectively […]

CE Research Topics

Wang Lab: Climate Events and Human Health

Research Focus: One of the research directions in my lab is about climate events and human health.

Skills, Techniques, and Methods: We want passionate students who have basic skills in searching for and summarizing literature. The students should have good communication skills. It will be a plus if the students have analytical skills, but it is not a request. The students can learn analytical skills during this summer’s research work.
