Terrestrial fate & transport of LDPE type plastics:
This research aims to understand the effect of weathering and mechanical abrasion on fragmentation of LDPE plastic types from macro-plastics to micro-plastics.
In this research effort we aim to assess the engineering students’ cultural wealth at three selected institutions (University of Colorado Boulder, James Madison University and Angelo State University) and to understand how engineering students’ personal values relate to beliefs about engineering. Findings from this research will tremendously assist educators in designing asset-based curriculum changes to achieve newly desired engineering students’ outcomes such as sustainability performance or environmental justice. The research protocol and survey instruments are approved by CUBoulder’s IRB (protocol #: 20-0400).
Community Capacity & Resiliency:
This research aims to understand how the Capacity Factor Analysis (CFA) model can be adapted from community level to family and personal level.
Aquifer storage & recovery:
This research aims to estimate Hickory Aquifer's properties using derivative analysis of water level time Series from active well fields.
