QUIP-RS is an immersive, multi-disciplinary summer research and creative program. This year’s projects ranged between business, engineering, science and social disciplines.
Inspired by the Flint, Michigan water crisis, Bracey chose to conduct her research on the removal of lead from water using ion exchange under the mentorship of Professor Joanna Kinsey.
“If something similar were to happen in Hamden, Connecticut, I wanted to know what the best method would be to remove lead from water,” said Barcey.
Barcey showcased her research to peers and guests at the annual Fall Symposium held on October 23. She is currently doing a similar experiment with the use of adsorbents such as activated carbon, alumina and used coffee grounds.
Giovanni Zinn, the City Engineer for New Haven, also attended the symposium and spoke to students about New Haven's rising sea level and climate change challenges. Zinn presented one of the city’s ongoing multi-disciplinary projects, which involves building about 275 mini, water absorbing gardens on the sidewalks of New Haven in order to remove excess street water and prevent flooding.
