Prior to earning a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry in 2016, she worked in analytical and physical chemistry teaching labs at Florida State University.
Pranav Muthuraman GeethaPranav Muthuraman Geetha is a Civil Engineering student at Florida State University. He is passionate for new knowledge, particularly structural design. He was born in India and raised in New Jersey. Outside of school, he is a head soccer coach with Florida Elite Soccer Academy and is affiliated with the South Asian Student Association and American Society of Civil Engineers. He has worked with Simeng Li on a research project synthesizing biochar-hydrogel composites for wastewater treatment.
Kyle LongKyle Long is a junior Environmental Engineering student at the FAMU-FSU College of Engineering. His studies focus on water resource management and environmental remediation. He has research experience relating to soil remediation and is co-authoring a research paper with Simeng Li that is pending publication.
Dr. Gang ChenDr. Gang Chen is a professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Florida State University. His principal research interest is in the area of watershed management, land use change and climate change, water flow and physicochemical reactions in the porous media, nutrient cycling, and landfill leachate management. His research is focused on watershed modeling, hydrologic and water flow modeling, and fate and transport of non-point source agricultural pollutants.
Dr. Johnny M. Grace, IIIDr. Johnny Grace is a general engineer at the Florida A & M University - USDA Forest Service. His work helps improve the current understanding of the influence of forest operations and management (forest biomass, harvesting, thinning, site preparation, and road operations) on forest soil and water quality.
Dr. Liang LiDr. Liang Li is an Environmental Consultant at Florida Department of Environmental Protection. She is mainly responsible for watershed assessment, section projects, trend analysis evaluations, and Study List assessments.
