It is with pleasure we announce Andrew Quicksall as a Hunt Institute Fellow. The Hunt Institute Fellows are appointed for their expertise and demonstrated excellence in their fields. During their tenure, they will collaborate on projects and contribute to the endeavors of the Institute.
Andrew Quicksall, Ph.D., as assistant professor of enviornmental engineering, studies aqueous metal enrichment and water contamination in the natural environment by probing both solution and solid chemistry of natural materials.
Supported by a grant from the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, Quicksall and a team of his graduate students collected water samples in UNHCR camps and brought them back to SMU for analysis and also trained workers in and around the refugee camps to test water supplies. The group is integrating information from other sources to develop a database that will help UNHCR planners provide safer drinking water in existing and future refugee camps.
