This month’s professional development meeting will go over the Flint, Michigan Water Crisis with "Hold Paramount the Safety, Health and Well-being of the Public" with Virginia Tech's Ni Zhu.

Prior to joining Dr. Marc Edwards’ group, she has had an undergraduate degree in Environmental Science and Engineering from National University of Singapore and a Masters of Engineering degree in Civil and Environmental Engineering from Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Her doctoral research area focuses on the effects of water chemistry on the attenuation of emerging microbial contaminants and antibiotic resistant gene/bacteria in recycled water distribution systems, using the next-generation meta-genomics sequencing technology. Since Professor Edwards started independent research on Flint water contamination last summer, she has been a core member of the Flint Water Study Team, helping with sampling processing and analysis in the laboratory.
