Through Wendell’s eyes, we see both the changing landscapes of rural America in the era of industrial agriculture and the redemptive beauty in taking the unworn path.

GLOBES Scholar Series: Genese Sodikoff: Multispecies Ethnography and Epidemiological Puzzles

Talk title: Multispecies Ethnography and Epidemiological Puzzles
"Climate change and our technological inputs into ecosystems have created novel risks to human health. Tracking down the mysterious causes of new or resurgent diseases often requires information about human-animal interactions in outbreak zones. Recent anthropological studies of zoonotic disease have yielded vital insights into the evolving ecologies of health. An ethnographic focus that moves beyond the human to include the habits of other species living in humanized environments can identify health risks. It can also raise new questions about transformations in disease dynamics."

ECI Brown Bag Seminar Series - Na Wei

Title: Engineering Biocatalysts at the Molecular Level for Water and Energy Sustainability

Eci Seminar Na Wei


Environmental contamination and increasing demand for renewable energy are two critical issues that need innovative and effective solutions to ensure a sustainable future. Biocatalysis, which refers to the use of enzymes or microbial cells for chemical transformations, can be exploited as a green chemistry alternative to address the challenges for environmental sustainability. This talk will present our research on understanding and engineering biocatalytic systems at the molecular level for i) degradation of emerging contaminants in water reclamation and reuse and ii) waste-to-energy/value biotransformation.
