Robert “Skip” Pomeroy, professor and senior lecturer with Soe in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of California, San Diego, will be presenting, “Rethinking Polyester Polyurethanes: Algae Based Renewable, Sustainable, Biodegradable and Recyclable Materials.”
Prime Locale for Water Reuse
“Water scarcity in this region has made everyone hyper-aware of water issues and extremely focused on finding ways to sustain their way of life in the desert.”
Active Learning at Its Best
“Our students are really successful, amazingly so. My goal is to create a series of tasks and questions that force even the best students to make tough choices.”
“We put a lot of time and energy into professional mentoring; telling students exactly what opportunities are out there for chemists, mathematicians and environmental engineers.”
Training for Jobs of the Future
“The very fabric of our nation’s economic and environmental sustainability hinges on a precarious balance of water supply reliability and security in the face of climate change and increasing urbanization.”
