Rachael is starting her first year of graduate work at University of New Hampshire. She knew she wanted to get into the environmental field after taking a high school class in biology. UNH has provided a lot of opportunities to work on real-life applications, not just experiments in a chemistry course. She has been involved in several research projects during her undergraduate career working for Dr. Jim Malley including nitrogen removal, phosphorus recovery using ion-exchange methods and UV technologies. Rachael will base her MS graduate research on the performance monitoring of UV pilot systems at several small systems in NH for Project 1 Activity 6.
