The main project goal is to improve the drinking water quality in rural regions that use groundwater as water source while producing valuable biomass, which can be used as a sustainable energy resource. The objective is to develop and evaluate the performance of a low-cost system using immobilized algal cells for nitrate and atrazine uptake.

 You will be assisting a PhD student working on this project. Tasks include: growing algae, manufacturing immobilization medium, measurements. If interested please contact me for an in-person meeting to discuss the project.
