Isaac Liu is a rising junior at Stony Brook University pursuing a B.S in Biochemistry and is on the predental track. He is currently working with iron-cellulose based adsorbents in an attempt to remove anionic containments from water. He hopes to improve oral health through his research and is applying to dental school in 2022.
Heidi Yeh is currently an undergraduate student pursing a B.S. in Biochemistry and a B.A. in Business Administration. She is currently working on the absorption behavior of cationic dialdehyde cellulose and dialdehyde cellulose on anionic dyes.
Fahmida Akter is a junior double majoring in Biology (Interdisciplinary Biology) and Sociology, with minors in Studio Art and Chemistry on the pre-med track. She is focusing on using bio-adsorbents to treat PFCs substances (PFBA, PFBS, PFBO, and PFBS) with Duning Li. This project could potentially lead to many advantages such as cheap feedstock, chemicals to be easily modified, and used as a selective design for PFAS removal.
