“I am a sophomore majoring in civil engineering, and I am working with Seth Robertson, a grad student in civil engineering with a focus in geotechical engineering. We are working for Prof. Pradeep Kurup, who is trying to develop a method for the detection of heavy metals in soil. My research is focused on using voltammetry in order to determine what metals are present in a solution and in what concentrations these metals are present. The tests I run involve applying an electrocial potential to a solution and observing how much current travels through the solution."
