Congratulations to Mohamed Mahmoud for advancing to Ph.D. candidacy in Environmental Engineering! Mohamed is exploring the use of microbial electrochemical cells for bioremediation of landfill leachate. Congrats Mohamed!
Rose Gochnour Serago, of the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering, wrote a piece featuring Dr. Torres' research.
Using bacteria to make electricity, treat wastewater
What if the bacteria found in wastewater could power the water's own purification system? Chemical engineering professor César Torres is exploring this possibility through research in microbial fuel cells, supported in large part by a $1.9 million grant from the Department of Defense - research that happens at the intersection of science and engineering.
