"Exploring with my students new ways to study long-standing questions with important environmental impacts is invigorating! Every day we get to be detectives, investigating how cells work in different environments and how they collectively impact oceans, lakes and the atmosphere."
Kimberly Halsey, Excellence in Microbiology Faculty ScholarCollege of Science
"Nowadays, we live around 90% of our time in buildings, which often have a negative impact on our health or well-being, and are responsible for a fair share of our energy consumption. Through my work on (day)lighting, I aim to contribute to the development of a more sustainable and healthy built environment."
Clotilde Pierson, Culbertson Faculty ScholarCollege of Engineering
