Scholar Highlight for Week Ending October 17, 2014

I now have my research lined up with Dr. A., a senior research scientist at the CSIRO Land and Water division in Brisbane.  The CSIRO is the Australian federal government’s elite research institution.  I will be working with some of the best researchers in the country.  A previous  SIT study abroad student who worked with Dr. A. got a co-authorship on a paper that was published in a major peer-reviewed journal and has gone on to establish a career in this field.  So this is a great opportunity.  Dr. A. has a number of projects running in his lab and he can slot me in to one of them.  Dr. Ahmed and his team focuses on identifying the microbial composition of water resources using next generation sequencing, tracking the sources of fecal pollution in environmental waters using molecular methods and development and evaluation of microbial methods for the detection and quantification of pathogens in water and wastewater.
