Students in the Spotlight
Flying High for Results
Alex MacDonald, working with associate professor Armin Sorooshian, is examining how aerosol particles interact with clouds and affect the atmosphere.It spans the whole spectrum: from how it affects human health, because you breathe these particles into your lungs, all the way to planet health, because these particles can affect climate change and the environment.
Balancing Power, Performance in the Cloud
Peace Corps Coverdell Fellow Daniel Serwon taught English to local residents and helped build underground rain-harvesting tanks in Rwanda before working on water desalination at the UA for the Navajo Nation.I’m so grateful this opportunity exists at the UA.
Sending Optical Fibers into Space, and Back
Guangbin Li, who is now a CHEE research assistant professor, worked on nitrogen-removal technology, and hopes to help raise environmental awareness in China.Water safety is definitely one of the most important things we should care about.
