Feinberg ’12 Presents at Woods Hole’s MBL
Daniel Feinberg ’12 presented the results of his original research on Permeable Reactive Barriers, systems that can remove nitrate pollution from groundwater, on Dec. 17, at the Marine Biological Laboratory (MBL) in Woods Hole, Mass. Feinberg was one of 16 students from around the country who spent the fall semester in the MBL Semester in Environmental Sciences (SES) program.
Sponsored by the MBL’s Ecosystems Center, whose scientists serve as faculty, the SES program “gives students the opportunity to interact with scientists who are conducting leading-edge ecological science research.” Students in the 15-week program spent more than 20 hours a week conducting hands-on lab work and field research along the Massachusetts coast, took courses in terrestrial and ecosystems science and participated in a science writing seminar.
Feinberg is the first Hamilton student to participate in the program.
